This isn’t easy to see but I think what you are referring to as cauls are only about 1/4” thick. That would be your problem. The cauls should be at least 3/4” thick. I use double 3/4” MDF in my press.

Are you asking about evening the surface of sawn veneer before pressing to the substrate? Traditionally that has been the job of the toothing plane. If you are referring to fixing your wavy glue up I would doubt it can be saved unless you were using hide glue. If you were, strip the veneer and re-glue it with proper cauls.
