Stave construction for doors

Tom Norton
Have been reading about building full size house doors using stave construction and 1/8" veneer. Most resaw then plane then thickness sand the veneer. But since I don't have a thickness sander I was wondering about the following.
Glue "thick" veneer,pick a dimension, to both sides of the stave blank then thickness plane the unit to achieve the 1/8" veneer thickness?
I have built other exterior doors out of full thickness lumber but was thinking of trying something different.
