Topic tags/keywords: resource veneer

Wishing that I had the skills to use this beautiful veneer.
I hope someone here can put it to good use. I’m not selling it , just sharing an Ebay find is all : )

I had seen that when it was just being posted. Very nice, but I don’t have experience with veneer. I have some, but haven’t used it yet. Too much nice solid wood to butcher!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

1/42” is just sooooooooooo thin.
There is virtually no room for error.
Unfortunately, that’s the direction veneer has been going for a quite a while now.

Photo-shopped….they most likely adjusted the light levels so you can see the figure better. I’ve done it myself. No crime committed , plus they identified it as such. : )

This is a cradle that I made for my daughter. It has Sapele Pomelle on the bottom. It’s at least 24” wide and 36” long. I bought a bundle of it 10 years ago. It’s nice to work with.
