More than You Need to Know
My office walls have been empty for a decade. During this time I kept telling myself that eventually I would frame some of the nicer veneers and put them on display. I started working on this 'project' in March of 2014. Step one required a company that could apply our raw wood veneer to a paperbacking. It took 4 months to find a company to do this and then 6 more months for them to do the work... processing, sanding, cutting to size.
Then we had to find a company to apply a lacquer finish to the veneers. After that, I needed several weeks to find a professional framing shop to put these veneers "behind glass". The bottom line is that it took more than 15 months from the idea to the finished product. Phew... I could have done it faster by myself if these were just for my office.
Early on however, I got to thinking that perhaps there might be other wood-lovers out there that also share in my appreciation of fine veneers and I certainly don't have enough shop time to make enough for everyone! So here they are just for you... and me.

My wife ordered three of these for me to put on the wall next to my desk and I must admit they are pretty sharp looking. I'd like a whole collection of these for the home office and if I were a bachelor, I'd put them everywhere around the house.
The frames are a quality product and the veneers that were selected for them are obviously the best of the best. There are so many too choose from so I guess I'll be asking for more this Christmas.
The shipping on the order was fair and even though the box was damaged a bit by UPS, the frames were packed so well that it would have taken a gorilla to break the glass.
As Arnold would say... I'll be back!

I found several of my favorite woods available in these frames so I ordered enough to make a nice row behind the desk in my shop. These are made very well and I'm not surprised because everything I've bought on this website has been excellent and the customer support here is just incredible.
The frames have the typical metal bracket on the back to make it easy to hang them. The black frame material has a nice sheen that doesn't look fake and they even put a backer board behind the frame... that is top quality finishing! I will probably order more of these if I can find room. I guess its time to take down my old Makita advertising posters from the 80's.

I just placed my second order for more of these veneers. I wasn't expecting the first one to be all that great but once it got here I was very happy with it. This is a really sharp way to show off some veneer. These obviously have a very nice finish on them but its not so thick that the wood looks fake. When I first ordered I didnt realize that these are good enough to put pretty much anywhere you'd want. The pictures on this site make the frames look a bit cheesy but in reality they are very nicely made. I bought Koa on my first order and just now I ordered Mahogany crotch, birds eye Maple, and curly Sycamore. Cant wait for them to get here!
