Re: Heat gun & veneer plywood

I'd be concerned as you are of causing the outer layer of wood laminate to buckle away from the lower layers. The glue between the layers might, or might not hold fast.
No way to know without trying.
I'd have similar concerns if using a paint stripper.
If it does pull up or buckle you could remove the buckled sections and cover it with thickened epoxy and sand fair.
