Topic tags/keywords: oak veneering resource

Fairly new to Lumberjocks, but what an awesome website.

I’m looking for a good veneer supplier, either online or in the Chicago area. I want to make flat veneer quarter sawn white oak panels for cabinet doors. I have plenty of white oak stock, but don’t want to use it for the door panels. Thinking of using veneer over MDF.

Any suggestions? Thanks JJ

I made some veneered panels for use on a toy box for my grandson Braedyn. I made my own veneering setup with help mostly from Joe mentioned above. I used curly maple over 1/4” mdf substrate and was very pleased with the results. It might help to find a local supplier of the veneer to use just so you can actually touch before you buy but Jow probably still supplies that as well.

I have had good luck with these two guys on eBay. I would recommend them. They ship quick and are pretty inexpensive. Sometimes eBay links don’t work so well so here are their names too.

Name: lepkowski

Name: rjfritz123

I have found that these rarely get bid on, so the bid you make is probably the only one. You could contact either one of these guys and just see what they have to sell outright, if you want.

Try Berkshire Veneer in Great Barrington , MA. They will send anything. I’ve rarely met folks that are so easy to work with. I paid them a visit a couple of year ago and it was well worth the half day trip from Connecticut. In fact next week a couple of woodworking buddies and I are going on a woodworking trip to the Berkshires and this place is on our list.

Thanks all for the information. This may be a long term project. Just starting to work with this White Oak.

This picture is a cope&stick door with a raised panel. I really don’t like the look of the raised panel, plus it really eats up the material, so the thinking is to try a flat panel.

Guess I need to either make or buy some veneer, and learn how to use it!

Check out “THEVENEERSTORE.COM” great prices and a lot of exotics. The picture that you see on the web site is what you get. I buy from them, great people and fast service.
