This was an idea that was brought up at the wood shop when i went looking for non-glued banding. The downside is twofold.
First, the only non-glued veneer i can get locally comes in 2 foot sheets or less. Hence i would have to 'patch' together 8 - 2 foot sections (i need about 16 feet of banding). This won't come out as nice or as easy to assemble as one single 16 foot piece. It would have alot of seams.

Second, i would have to rip 3/4" pieces off a 12" wide veneer sheet and with what?
I don't have all the great wood working tools of some on the forums. My cuts would likely be quite uneven requiring alot more trimming after application. That isn't as big a deal as point #1 of course. I probably could just use a box cutter and steel square to do the job.
One thing i should note, the wood shop only had 2 species of wood veneer sheets and one was oak (not happening). I think the other was maple, which might be ok, but the table top is cherrywood, so not a great match.

Ultimately the cost to do this isn't any less than possibly buying a single 20' strip of banding from a fellow on eBay who sells the non-glued material.

And yes, when i do get around to the task, i will be using tape to 'clamp' it while the glue cures. I saw that tip on some woodworking master site. That's fantastic for this application b/c i don't have clamps wide enough to span the table top.

I thought i put up a pic on the past but if not, here is the table as finished 2 years ago. Most of the delamination has occurred on the right side of the table which as you can see from the photo is the location that gets the most direct sun.

Funny. I was thinking he needs a drink or six. Everything will look much better after that.

We contemplated a pergola, but it won't make much of a difference unless it had a cloth covered top which brings its own annoyances for wind tearing, mildew, bird crap...
