Topic tags/keywords: kraft paper marquetry veneer

I have entire rolls of european kraft paper available, fresh off the plane from France. This is the same ribbed kraft paper that you use when you learn marquetry from Patrick Edwards. This is 90 g/m2 paper, 120 cm wide rolls x 250 m long (that’s 273 yards).

Price is $550 per roll plus actual shipping. That’s $2/yard (plus shipping). If you want to pick it up, I am in Maryland, between Washington D.C. and Frederick (specifically, Damascus, MD). If I ship them, they will come crated (they’re heavy!).

If you only want partial rolls, I can sell 15 yard lengths at $3/yard (plus actual shipping). This should be the same as Patrick Edwards’s price. I really don’t want to compete with him, but some people may live closer to Maryland, so I offer the partial rolls as more of a service to the marquetry community. If you are closer to Patrick Edwards in San Diego, contact him for partial rolls (shipping will be cheaper).

Paypal is preferred if shipping. We can discuss other payment methods, too. Cash in person is also great.

If you want a shipping estimate, call me or email me with your address.

You must be planning to do a LOT of marquetry Wes. I use about two or three yards a year and I thought I did a lot.
I’m not being critical, just wow, that’s a lot to have tied up in inventory.

Yeah, I don’t think I’ll ever need to buy kraft paper again. Blades, yes. Kraft paper, no.

Have your say...
