Item details

If you are as fascinated by the astonishing of variety of wood as we are, this is the right veneer pack for you. The mix contains 32 sheets of various wood species and figurations, and it is heavy on the 'exotic wood' side, too.

It is also a perfect gift to any woodworker or marquetarian on any occasion: with this many species that include rare and precious woods, you can be sure you can show something new the recipient.

* * *

PLEASE NOTE that veneer grade in this mix varies between flawless (Grade AA) to just acceptable (Grade B/C), albeit with 28 out of 32 sheets being AA or A grade. We wanted to bring you as many species as possible, so when we only had a poorer grade of a given species available, we still included it. Consult the detailed list below for grade information per species.

✪ DETAILS ✪

* 32 sheets of raw, unbacked veneer.

* Length 30cm (~11.8") long, with the exception of the walnut burl veneer (22cm long). Width varies (see species list).

* Every sheet in this mix is labeled with the wood species name and botanical name, using a removable, low-tack label.



✪ NOTES ✪

* Unfortunately, we cannot ship this veneer pack combined with other items in the shop, as it fills up our box quite nicely with little room for other items.

* See our shop for veneer photos: the veneer you get in this pack will be quite similar.

* Wood is a natural product and it is almost never free of defects. We carefully inspect our veneer and always tell you if the sheet you get is less than perfect. See the list below for details.

FAQs

✪ We dispatch your order in 1-2 business days. ✪ Default shipping is priority international postal mail (not tracked). You can upgrade to Signed & Tracked at checkout for a small premium. Please be aware that tracking scope may be limited for certain destinations (mostly within Europe). ✪ See the "Express shipping" section for express delivery upgrades. ✪ For estimated delivery times and cost to your region, please refer to our shop shipping policy. ✪ Shipping is automatically combined for multiple items. You will be charged only a single shipping cost, regardless the number of items in your order (exceptions apply, these are always noted). ✪ Your veneer is shipped in a sturdy box or rigid envelope to prevent any damage in transit.

Each of these refer to various methods of slicing up a log for veneer production. ✪ Crown cut (a.k.a. "flat cut" or "plain sliced") results in "cathedral" look with the grain tightly packed around the edges, often with an eye in the center. ✪ Quarter cutting result in very straight grain. ✪ Rift cut is somewhat similar to this quarter cutting and it is frequently used for oak. Choosing one over the other boils down to your project and preference: they all handle more or less the same. Quarter cut and rift cut veneers may be a bit more expensive as these methods of production results in a lower veneer yield from the log.

Veneers are sliced sequentially from a log, so each consecutive sheet has a very similar look. This enables creating a pleasing visual effect by placing two or more sheets next to each other. With book matching and butt matching (a.k.a. end matching), you flip one of the veneers along one of the axes to get a mirrored, kaleidoscopic look. With slip matching, you build a repetitive pattern by placing sequenced veneers next to each other. Our veneer sets are typically sequence matched. Consult the description of the given listing for sequence matching information.

Yes, as long as you order the multiples at once. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a sequence match for multiple orders, because somebody else may buy a few sheets off the given sequence in between your orders.

Unless otherwise noted, our veneer is of the standard 0.6 ± 0.1mm (~1/42") thickness.

Our dimension figures are defined as minimums. Usually, the veneer will be a bit larger by a few millimeters. This allows you to square the veneer, cut off rough edges (if any), etc. and still have the required dimensions for your project.

We are looking into that. Give us a shout to help us gauge the interest.
