Real Wood Veneers...
for marquetry, box building, even
Using exotic wood veneers is a great way to turn a normal woodworking
project into an exotic piece of fine artwork. And its easy. We have
all the instructions.
Try a sample box of fine wood veneers,
find an old iron in the local flea market, and start experimenting
with the technique. It really is as simple as gluing it down to
a piece of plywood, and trimming the edges. Check out our page on
-- how to work with
veneers -- for some great suggestions.
None of our veneers are paper backed so you can say, glue a burled
walnut crotch veneer to a solid piece of walnut and the seam line
becomes almost invisible. You now have a solid piece of exotic wood
to incorporate into your next small box.
For the more experienced, we have a selection of veneers sorted
by wood species ... links to:
