This week I found and purchased a 20 year collection of some really cool veneers. This collection belonged to the brother of a former customer I worked for about 10 years ago. The man and his wife both worked for a large veneer company for many years, and brought home many treasures during that time, The mans wife passed away a few years ago and he realized he was never going to use all of this, and then I stepped in. After a 5 month delay, I drove 2 hours away and was overwhelmed by what I found. After checking out his collection, which by the way he kept in 2 rooms of his house, we agreed on a price and spent 2 1/2 hours loading it all on my truck and trailer. I now have more veneer than I could use in 3 lifetimes, so I am going to attempt to identify, measure and catalogue it so I can sell some and let others enjoy some of this beautiful wood. At present I can identify about half of it. Some of it I have never seen before. I’m sure I will seek the help of the Lumberjock crowd to help with identifying some of the unusual ones.
