I use iron-on wood veneer edging I find in the hardware store to make wood floors in my  dollhouses; I cut it into "board" lengths and split it into "board widths and spot-glue the strips into place, then iron the entire floor to glue it to the subfloor before sanding and staining.

good tip will remember that

I glued a piece of 1/32" sheet to the back of the main case trimmed to fit, in the back it only goes across the inside doublers and a slight bit of the sides just to set in in a tiny bit. So the process for veneering the case is fairly simple. Cut a little oversize, glue and clamp (I use Titebond III wood glue), trim to fit, then do the next piece. The veneer is thin enough a little sanding takes care of the overlap at the corners but I do the sides first and then the front so the front overlaps the side. I am putting this one aside while I veneer the second case and finish the molding strips
