Just came across a 40 year or so collection of veneers that a gentleman was using for marquetry work and for instrument building.
It’s more veneer than I will ever use in a lifetime, but I just couldn’t pass on the opportunity to pick through it. Figured I could turn around and sell most of it for what I paid via Craigslist. But I thought I’d offer some of the nicer stuff up to my LJs buddies before I go that route.
It will take me awhile to get everything half-way organized and identified, but here is “Lot 1, Exotics” I realize that some of these aren’t exotic…..but most of theses I’ve never heard of before…and the ones that are domestic are either really pretty or real wide. Most of them are flat, some of them are a little warped, but nothing a little veneer conditioner won’t handle. I believe every piece in this lot is usable.
I’d like to get $75 plus shipping out of this, feel free to offer more, or tell me you think I’m crazy, but here are a bunch of pics and sizes I snapped yesterday.
Some of the pieces have had small pieces cut out of them, so all of the dimensions are of the narrowest point, even though they may be longer or wider at certain points…. or of the smallest piece of there are multiple pieces.
This would be a great score for anyone who does marquetry, or maybe small box making. I have a ton more. There is another box full of unlabeled pieces, two boxes of shorter pieces and scraps, a box of all different color dyed veneers, a box of wide mahogany veneers, and 3 boxes of patterns, templates, and other marquetry goodies. Like I said, a solid 40 year collection. PM me if you’re interested in any of this
