Item details

Short length wood veneer set. Great for marquetry, jewelry projects, modelling, box making, bentwood ring making, etc.

Plum can look a bit bland without a finish. Check out the last photo to see the difference between the sanded+unfinished and sanded+waxed look.


✪ NOTES ✪

Wood veneer is a natural product and often has imperfections. We inspect our veneer thoroughly and document any defects below:

* Up to 1cm (0.4") sapwood.

* Healthy knot on the long edge of the veneer you receive is possible.

* Clipping is not perfect, expect up to 5mm (0.2") offset when bookmatching.

* There may be a bit of dirt on the sheet you receive (sand or scrape it off).


✪ PROPERTIES ✪

* Grade: AA (grades from best to worst: AA, A, A/B, B, B/C, C)

* Veneer cut: Crown

* Sheets: 2 sheets

* Dimensions: 31 x 9 cm (~12.4″ x 3.5″)

* Surface area: 0.057 sqm (~0.610 sqft).

* Thickness: 0.60 mm (~1/42″).

* Sheets in this listing are consecutive (sequence matched). They can be book matched, slip matched or butt matched for your project. Sequence is guaranteed if you buy multiples of this listing.

* You will get the depicted veneer or very similar. Sheets in this listing are from the same part of a single veneer bundle, so the wood figure is largely identical for all sheets.


✪ ABOUT THE WOOD ✪

Common name(s): plum
Botanical name(s): Prunus domestica
The Wood Database link: http://www.wood-database.com/plum/

Plum tree (Prunus spp.) wood is rarely available commercially, because, well, selling the fruit is probably just better business. In our home country, the fruit is also a major ingredient of a hellishly strong local brandy called 'szilvapalinka'. Feel free to turn it down if offered. Or be brave and take it, you have been warned.

Anyway, this veneer is just wonderful — it has all the colors of a sunset, including vibrant purple streaks you won't get from any other wood (that includes purpleheart). Looks gorgeous under a clear finish. It also very easy to work with, let it be marquetry, ring making or any other project.


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.
