ok ive been a workshop manager for 6 years. which glues for veneer or thick laminates(colour core) especially on curves. do laminates need a little sealing. i always seal mdf or flexi ply with thin coat contact adhesive. glue motice tennon doors pva or cascemite(white powder) know under other names. end grain MDF onto face mdf, does all glues absorb into mdf fibres. any 1 ever make curved bars or reception desk what do u do about inside curve i form 2 layers flexi ply after glue gone off take of form work then laminate finish. p.s had too much beers just in case this dont make sense

John you are like a proverbial machine gun of questions

My choices of glue

Veneering- Polymite

Laminating - depends what you are laminating, but Aerolite 306 is good

Mortice and tenon doors - Titebond 3 or Polymite (epoxy or Polyproof if extremely exposed)

End to face MDF - I doubt you could get any glue to work without adding biscuits or the like
