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.

We have bought several orders of veneer tape from this company and our order was always shipped on the day ordered. They are a very friendly and efficient company to deal with. We highly recommend them!

Been using Joe's German veneer tape for years and have never had a problem. I particularly like his 3 hole tape. There is something different about it that makes it easier to wet. I'm not sure what it is but its better than what I used to by up north.

As a first time bookmatche, the holed tape has been a great help once I realized that you wet the tape, then apply it. I should have known. One note: I live in humid south Florida and the humidity ruined the 1st roll by sticking it together in short-order. This time I will keep it in a Zip lock bag.
