How are the veneers sold?
We offer raw wood veneer in two formats. "Sheets" are sold as individual pieces of veneer and are listed and priced by the sheet. The website listing will tell you exactly how many sheets are available in our real-time inventory so you can order as many as you need. Sheets are generally more expensive per square foot than veneers which are sold by the lot.
"Lots" are sold as bundles of veneer sheets. The square foot measurement of the lot is calculated by multiplying the number of sheets in the lot by the size of a single sheet of that veneer. The price shown is the cost for the entire lot. Please note that we often have more than one lot available. If there is a lot that is listed as 10 sheets and there are 2 lots, that indicates that we have 20 total pieces available.
Where can I learn more about veneering?
The JoeWoodworker website is loaded with veneering articles that we have written.
Do you offer samples?
Please see this page for a listing of the samples we offer.
Do you have a catalog?
Catalogs are extremely expensive. A printed catalog would force me to raise my prices which is something I work dilegently to avoid. We see almost constant price increases from our suppliers and when this forces me to raise our prices, I cringe and lose sleep. I just can't see a benefit to offering a catalog especially when all of the large-size pictures of our veneers look so good on a computer screen.
How is the veneer shipped and priced?
We have a great page on our website that explains our practices and policies for the veneers. Feel free to check it out and contact us if you have any further questions.
Do you offer thicker veneers?
Generally speaking, we do not stock thick veneers because they are highly prone to warping and are notably difficult to flatten. Almost any project that seems to demand a thick veneer, can be done with a standard veneer thickness. And when we have found thick veneers, they have been too expensive. Also, thick veneers are very difficult to ship.

Which vacuum press should I build? or Will my air compressor work with the Project: V2 kit?
