I have acquired a large collection of unique veneers. I have little interest in using them in the convential way. I wonder – can I use veneer as a lamp shade. I would make a wood frame and insert flat sheets of veneer. Has anyone else done this? Does anyone have advice on how to do this? To add strength, could/should I put 2 or more sheets of veneer together? Should I glue the sheets together?

Any advise would be appreciated.

The veneer is epoxied to lexan. Plans came from Wood magazine #200.

Also consider this:

I think if the surface area is large, a backer would be needed
