I forgot to talk about an important step, a step that should prevent the need to ever do this again.

I coated the entire 1/8" inch wood panel in this two part epoxy. Once all the holes were drilled and features cut, I coated all edges and surfaces in this epoxy I chose this because it is thin enough to spread easily with a squeegee (or old gift credit card in my case), chemically impervious, and contact adhesive would still stick to it. I gave it a light sand to remove any snags and to help with adhesion of the contact cement. I used a heat gun to make sure that the epoxy had absorbed into the wood and wasn't just on the surface.
