Yes... it's really a page about us. Imagine that!
Our website often conveys the image that we are a large corporation with a giant warehouse and dozens of employees. The truth is that our business is operated entirely by me, my wife and a part time helper. We handle everything from customer questions and website maintenance to order packing and credit card processing from a small warehouse here in Forest Hill, Maryland.
I'm an average woodworker with an average workshop and way too many projects to get done. I enjoy everything from small lathe work to large furniture projects. But it seems like I spend most of my free time sharing and swapping woodworking stories. In the shop, I have the basic hand and power tools... enough to get projects done anyhow.
Several years ago, I built a vacuum powered veneer press to add to my tool collection. The project was successful so I decided to write an article describing the construction process. After much testing and adjusting, I put the vacuum press article on the Internet. Then in March '03, I opened VeneerSupplies.com to help get vacuum pressing parts and exotic wood veneer into the hands of hobbyist woodworkers and small-shop craftsmen. Since then, the article has received over 7.1 million page hits and as of January of 2013, I have personally answered over 68,000 emails about veneering and vacuum pressing. So far, the customer comments have been very positive and the business experience has been educational and enjoyable.
What Can You Expect From VeneerSupplies.com?
The Staff at VeneerSupplies.com
We've grown a little over the years and I've been fortunate to have a great staff that makes our business run as smooth as it does. Where would I be without them? I'd be nowhere. Without the help of these fine folks, this website would not exist. It is with their hard work and endless enthusiasm that orders from this site are packed and shipped on time. Here's the "who and what" of our company.
This is just a way to explain that VeneerSupplies.com is simply a small company trying to get more woodworkers into the art of veneering. If you have a question, we'll answer it personally. If you place an order, we'll fill it personally. And if you like what we've done here, we'll accept your kind words very personally.
Thanks for dropping by. I hope to hear from you soon!
