I'm in process of stripping/scraping off the old laquer on the cabinet. I've noticed that the veneer is begining to separate at the rounded edges.

I was afraid of this given how the cabinet was stored, that sort of crack, over a curve, is very hard to repair without it cracking again, though you may get lucky by injecting glue under the break. About the only permanent repair would be to re-veneer the damaged area.
Regards
Arran

Arran, I have done a glue repair on a Pilotuner case that had a crack along the curve. I got the veneer to stay down fine, but you can definitely see the crack. I'm still working on blending in the color using brown show polish.
