« Part 1: The First Half has Arrived Part 2 of Thick Veneer from France...and other places series Part 3: Shop Sawn Pepperwood Veneer (not fron France) »

I’ve been patiently waiting for the rest of my veneer to arrive from France so we can leave for AZ. Well it arrived today and we leave in the morning. As promised here are the photos.

WARNING: A lot of photos of pretty veneer, you may want to pass on this one.

The second package.

Mocutaiba (Tiger Ear, Pao Santo)

Douka (Makore)


Espenille (West Indies Satinwood)

Amourette (Snakewood)

Gaboon Ebony

Holly

Sycamore

Some scraps of Black Palm that Frederic gave me to play with.

Olive

Pink Peroba

Bois de Violette (Kingwood)

This lot

The whole works

I selected some to take South with me and packed the rest under weight for the winter. This is just about the first work my scroll saw has done since I built my first chevalet. .... ;-)

Thanks for looking in

I’ll check in when I get to AZ.

Magnificant purchase! I suppose you got to select the peices you desired to buy; or did he secect them for you then you approve? What did you spray them with to show the beautiful grain and full colors? It sure does the job. I can just imagine what your finished work might look like. Thanks again for sharing.

Paul,
Lovely stuff indeed. I already have a bad veneer habit, and you’re not helping a bit! LOL I’ll stay tuned to see what becomes of all this stuff. The snakewood makes my mouth water.

Have a god trip, but you may as well stay in BC. With all the new veneer, you won’t know if it is sunny or pouring out this winter ;-))

Thanks for the pictures, beautiful veneer, some I’ve never heard of. The snakewood I’ve seen did not look as nice as yours. Have you got an idea for a project yet ? Have fun.

Paul,

It looks like the DeWalt will have to work the whole time you’re in sunny Arizona! As quickly as you complete your magnificent projects you’ll be back in France again next year, creating more envy in your already-jealous, fellow LJs.
