How do you remove veneer from furniture?

Use a heat gun and a putty knife chisel. Start by heating a small area, about 4" square, holding the heat gun 2-3" away from the surface, depending on the heat setting. The exterior will start to bubble. The glue will begin to loosen underneath. Carefully, the surface will be hot, insert the chisel under the veneer and gently scrape. Use safety glasses in case the veneer chips. Fumes are a possibility so work in a well ventilated area.
