Well as for veneering flat surfaces like that its quite easy, you allready have some clamps, just need a board slightly bigger than the area you are veneeringput some paper between it and the veneer incase any glue goes through, then steam the veneer a bit if it has wobly bits in, get some good glue, like the stuff they use for shoe soles, put un your veneer, put on paper, put on bigger board, and clamp for a day or 2, then just sandoff any pieces of paper stuck and you have created a wooden surface in any type of your choice.

I was 17 the first time I did it, and that was from a book, sureley you can find something on the web, in total its gonna cost you another 10 minutes of work, and all you need oter than the glue is a nice sharp sidecutter.
