Thanks for all the help, Paul.

I think there might be two questions still:
a) since the veneer is about 1/8 thick, should I try to get some glue on the edges of veneer pieces that are contiguous. Perhaps some of this will happen anyway.

b) try this project as a whole (all at one time), OR in three parts 1. birdseye maple + ebony strips, 2) amaranth and medallion 3) birdseye maple + filler ebony strips.

and a new question: should I score (or lightly sand with # 50 paper) both the substrate and the underside of the veneer to enhance glue adhesion? Both seem rather smooth due to scraping off the old glue.
