Our latest sample book contains 49 extra-large paperbacked veneer samples including a PSA and a 2-ply veneer. This is a superb reference guide for cabinetmakers and architects. Your clients will appreciate the opportunity to see labeled samples of the available species for their project. These are actual product samples; not just pictures of veneers. Each sample is protected by a removable clear sleeve. Supplies are limited.
We also include our 8-page "Backed Veneer Guide" and a price list for each paperbacked, 2 ply, and edgebanding on our website.
Sample size: 8" x 10"
Each sample book contains the following veneers:
We also have individual samples of many of these veneer species.
The sample catalog used to have 41 samples right?
Yes... without raising the price, we were able to get 8 additional samples in our current batch of sample books. There are now 49 samples in each!
What is a PSA veneer?
It is a paperbacked veneer with a pressure sensitive adhesive applied to the backing. Think of it as "peel and stick" veneer. The sample book includes one PSA sample veneer.
Do these veneers have a stain or other finish on them?
I don't offer any veneers that are stained. A pre-stained or pre finished veneer would have all sorts of issues when applied and trimmed.
Review by Michael Schuler
A fantastic intro to veneers! I'm a professional cabinetmaker and bought this sample pack to present options to clients. Everything about Joe's pack is top shelf. The samples themselves are big and beautiful, each one presented and protected in an individual plastic sleeve along with very instructive information for those not already familiar with veneers and veneering. I hoped this would be a good resource, but I was wrong --- it's a great technical resource and effective sales tool. No doubt, it sold the job I bought it for and paid for itself instantly. On top of this, Joe's communications and service are as good as I have found anywhere.

Received sample book in just a few days. Will be a helpful tool to show clients the vast array of veneers available for cabinetry and furniture. Web site is well done, easy to locate what you need. Look forward to doing business with Joe.

I ordered these samples to get a hands on view of the different woods. It came very quickly and yes it was helpful to see the woods up close. Now I have a few more choices than I originally thought.
Review by Ken Adams
Not sure which veneer best suits your project, or looking for a species that's just a bit darker, lighter, more or less figured than what you have currently? Get this book? I have actually divided each sample into a couple parts, leaving most of the sheet raw and natural, and clear-coating a smaller portion to see its finished appearance.
Review by Michael Godfrey
Once I have customer who I know is serious about their kitchen remodel, I let them take this book home so they can select a wood for their project. The book is a must have resource if you have customers who dont know maple from zebrawood. My order was fulfilled very quickly and it arrived in two days. I've ordered veneer from this store several times and I've always been very pleased with the purchase. Top notch operation here. You get quick email replies and the speed of their order processing is hands down the best I have ever found.
Review by Joe Boia
This has become my "go to" resource when a customer comes into our shop for cabinet work. This catalog allows our customer to choose a species based on color and grain.
Shipping was very quick (2 days) and the cost is reasonable considering how large the samples are.
Review by Don Mullen
This is a must-have item. My clients love looking through this book. It makes them more aware of the possibilities in a project. It has also made it easier for me to suggest using a combination of veneer species on some jobs. The last 3 jobs we took were for customers wanting to combine walnut with maple or walnut with cherry. The sample book makes the process of wood selection much easier. For the price, you can't beat it. The shipping was very reasonable and delivery time for me was only 2 days.
Review by Howard Mc Donell
I have had a sample book for my clients to look through for several years and I constantly hear them say "these samples are too small". This sample book solved that problem immediately. Its amazing what a difference there is between a 6 x 6 sample and these huge 8 x 10 samples. I found something similar to this at (another supplier) for $59.95 so the price here is quite fair.
Review by James Packard
This sample book is very impressive to say the least. Most of my clients have no idea of the variety of wood veneers that are available. With this book, I can remove samples and let the customer take them home for evaluation. Several of my clients have opted to go with exotics instead of plain old oak and this is simply because the sample was so impressive to them. I have found that the lacewood, rosewood, and anigre veneers are now more popular than ever. When a client asks me to build a vanity from maple, I now suggest anigre and show them the sample. It doesnt take much more than that to convince them that there are better choices. My local rep offers a similar sample book at $64.95 and the samples are actually smaller and fewer. Working with Joe to get this book in my hands could not have been easier. He is a pleasure to speak with and knows what it takes to offer exceptional service. Jim Packard, August Mill Cabinetry
