A friend unloaded a nice amount of burl veneers on me. Problem is, there are gaps in the veneer..some about 1/16" wide. I tried to glue a piece to substrate, but the glue filled the gaps and that piece is, to me, unusable. I generally oil my pieces, so the glue won't allow for penetrating oil, and it shows up as a glue line.
What is the solution to filling small gaps in veneer, with the intention of Danish Oil finishing? Also, how do I glue it without having the glue fill those voids ? If I figure out how to post a pic, I will.

Can you tape the back side of the veneer and fill it with filler
before gluing?
As far as gluing, spraying contact cement will probably be your best bet.
