Richard, thanks.

I've done some additional panels and while the method was unscientific in that I changed more than one variable, I have had success. First, I don't think I had keyed the mdf sufficiently and so I dug out the toothing plane and had at it. Second, I used a bit more glue. And third, I reworked my pressing situation to get more and more even clamping force applied (no vacuum equipment as yet). I don't know what combination of the three was at fault, but it feels good to see a way forward.

I'll strip off the thin veneer that failed and redo that.

Thanks again for the advice.

CJ
