Veneer tape is used to join two pieces of veneer and keep the seam tight while the adhesive cures. The beauty of this water-activated veneer tape is that it shrinks as it dries. It is this shrinking action that pulls the veneers together and makes a well-cut joint almost invisible. This is a must have item if you have purchased a veneer saw and are bookmatching, quad-matching, or inlaying raw wood veneer.

Choose the Right Veneer Type for Your Project
Brown vs White Veneer Tape
White tape may be a better choice on veneers that have a brown color. The contrast of white tape on a brown veneer is an excellent visual indicator of any tape remaining on the surface that needs to be sanded off. Likewise, the brown tape may be a better option on lighter color veneers like birch, maple, fir, tamo ash, and white oak.
Brown kraft veneer tape is also slightly thicker and it's been said that it shrinks more than white tape when it dries. This contracting reportedly does a better job of pulling loose veneer joints together. Despite the difference in thickness, white tape is slightly more tear resistant.
No Hole Veneer Tape
This is a full strength tape for stubborn veneers. I highly recommend it for maple, karelian birch, and bubinga.
Three Hole Veneer Tape
Ideal for standard veneer joints where it is important to see the seam line under the tape. It is this 3rd hole (the center one) that allows you to see the joint.
Four Hole Veneer Tape
This extra-wide veneer tape is perfect for large veneer projects where the ultimate holding strength is required to keep the joint tight.
