Product Description

We Support Canine Partners for LifeCall it a "scrap", "marquetry" or "practice" box but we also call it a "giving" box. For every box sold, we will donate $20 to Canine Partners for Life. This is an exceptional organization doing something truly amazing. Take a minute to visit their site if you have never heard of CPL.

If you're into marquetry, these boxes might be perfect for you. Get them while you can because the last batch I made up sold out in a few weeks. Each box contains about 50 square feet of raw (unbacked) veneer. The thickness of these veneers is approximately 1/42" inch. Sizes range from 1" x 3" to 8" x 10" and sheet count varies. The box we use is 12" x 9" x 6" and weighs 5 to 6 lbs.

What is Canine Partners for Life?
For 25 years, Canine Partners for Life (CPL) has been dedicated to training service dogs (including various types of medical alert dogs) and home/residential/courthouse companion dogs, to assist individuals who have a wide range of physical, neurological and cognitive disabilities.

CPL was founded in 1989 by Darlene Sullivan, a former special education instructor and animal trainer. The organization flourished, and in 1997, CPL purchased a 45-acre property in Cochranville, PA and expanded further. Today, the facilities include an office building for a staff of 28, a state of the art kennel and a training center. To date, CPL has placed over 600 service and companion dogs in over 45 states.

Canine Partners for Life is a recognized and highly respected leader in the assistance dog industry. It was one of the first service dog organizations in the world to be accredited by Assistance Dogs International (ADI).

The total cost to raise, train, place, and provide lifetime support for each CPL dog is estimated to be more than $30,000 per dog. The organization utilizes a sliding scale based on income to determine the suggested donation for each recipient, ranging from $1,000 – $3,000. No one is denied a canine partner because of their inability to donate this amount.

When will you make the donation?
To simply the process, I will send the donation as soon as the last marquetry box has been shipped.

Product Reviews

  1. You Will Definitely Get Your Money's Worth

    Review by Gary Dominguez

    I received my first box and I was blown away at the quality and size. I was expecting a box full of basic smaller leftover pieces dumped in randomly. All the veneer was stacked wonderfully in tight overlapping piles of 2 to 5 of the many different types and much larger than expected. You will definitely get your money's worth and more.

    Well Joe and Christine, you have done it again! I just received a box of veneer from your bargain bin yesterday and it again has far exceeded my expectations! Some of the nicest and exotic veneers I have ever seen!!!!

    The quality of your veneer is as usual first rate plus and the value of this product is just incredible!

  3. Review from West Chester, Ohio

    Review by Robert Harris

    I've bought several of the boxes of marquetry veneer and have been happy every time. The quality and variety of veneer is really great. Often there are several pieces making up a small flitch. Some of it is good backer veneer, while much of it is awesome exotic show piece veneer. Its always a fun surprise to get these and see what I have to work with.

Yes this is a GREAT product from a GREAT company!

  5. Review from Port Washington, WI

    Review by Jason Luedtke

    This box was wonderful! I am new to marquetry and this box had so many different types of veneer. Good size sheets and even quite a few matching. Great purchase for a beginner as it gives me lots of different veneer to experiment with at a great price. Great customer service as well. My order shipped fast and it was great to get a personal email from Joe. Here's hoping my first project turns out OK.

  6. Review from Chesapeake, Virginia

    Review by John Payton

    I am new to marquetry, and was a little confused about what I should start ordering, but received an email from Joe about 'practice' marquetry boxes of mixed veneer, wasn't sure what would be in the box or if it would be useful. These boxes are nothing short of simply GREAT. Many different woods with all kinds of grain patterns. And Joe is fantastic in replying to emails. What else can you ask for in a business, fast shipping, great product, great customer service! Joe, you certainly have my business as I grow and learn marquetry!

  7. Review from Austin, TX

    Review by Crisi Cooper

    Just received my order - A box of random marquetry veneers. Gotta tell you that it felt a lot like Christmas when I saw the beautiful wood inside. Big pieces, book matches, amazing variety. I don't know what some of it is, but my mind is suddenly filled with a whirl wind of ideas! Perfect for the small custom projects that I do.

    This was the best money that I've spent in years. Can't wait to get started!

  8. Review from Minneapolis, MN

    Review by Brad Hopke

    Great value. Very nice varied assortment of veneers.

  9. Review from North Hills, PA

    Review by Terry Haslett

    Just received the box today and was surprised at the amount of veneer inside. There is plenty in there to experiment with and get to know inlaying better.

  10. Review from Rockville, MD

    Review by Preston Weir

    This is one of the best values for people starting to learn marquetry or for people who need some project inspiration (nothing to spark creativity like a box of random materials). My box had a wide assortment of species and many interesting pieces (burls, figured pieces, etc.), and multiple matched sheets throughout. It had almost no cracked/broken sheets.

  11. Review from Woodbridge, VA

    Review by Kevin Kilcoyne

    Wasn't sure what to expect... figured on a bunch of scraps and such. Well, I was wrong. Great assortment of species, and most pieces were as large as they could be and still fit in the box! This assortment will keep you busy for a long time.

  12. Excellent Assortment

    Review by Jim Adwell

    This is an excellent assortment of exotic wood veneers. Plenty of matched pieces and a good assortment of species. I am very pleased.
