Product Description

If you're into marquetry, these boxes might be perfect for you. Get them while you can because the last batch I offered sold out in a few weeks and it was a year until I was able to offer these again. Each box contains about 50 square feet of raw (unbacked) veneer.

The thickness of these veneers is approximately 1/45" 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 about 4 lbs. There are typically more than 140 pieces of veneer in each box.

Marquetry Boxes

Each box contains at least 15 of the veneer types below:

  • Marbled Walnut
  • Birds Eye Maple
  • Elm Burl
  • Mappa Burl
  • Amboyna Burl
  • Quilted Maple
  • Flat Cut Cherry
  • Figured Bubinga
  • Quartersawn Cherry
  • Pommele Sapale
  • Figured Mahogany
  • Mahogany Crotch/Swirl
  • Spanish Cedar
  • Walnut Burl
  • Walnut Crotch/Swirl
  • Pepperwood Burl
  • Curly Maple
  • Birds Eye Zebrawood
  • Hawaiian Koa
  • Bolivian Rosewood
  • Marbled Zebrawood
  • Flat Cut Walnut
  • Red Gum
  • Honduran Rosewood
  • Olive Ash Burl
  • Quartersawn Walnut
  • Madrone Burl
  • Tamo Ash
  • Cherry Crotch
  • Wormy Chestnut
  • Ziricote
  • Ebony
  • Paldao
  • Quartersawn White Oak

Additional Notes and News:

  • Each box is unique therefore the veneers inside will vary from one box to another.
  • There may be additional species included that are not listed above.
  • The species inside each box are not labeled.
  • Some splits and cracks should be expected that will reduce the total yield.
  • We can not custom-pack a box of veneer.
  • These are raw wood veneers (no backing).
  • A limit of two boxes per customer will be strictly enforced.
  • We can only ship this item to addresses within the US due to export limitations on certain species.
  • This product is non-returnable.

Since these boxes contain species that can not be shipped out of the US, can you custom pack a box for me that has veneer which can be shipped to other countries?
Unfortunately, I can not offer to do that. I apologize for the inconvenience.

  2. Another Great Review

    Review by Aleksandr Spiridonov

    A nice amount of beautiful veneer pieces. Originally, I got these as a sampler pack for reference purpose and to test different techniques and finishes on. Can’t wait to put them to use in an actual project.

  3. Excellent

    Review by Ken Harman

    Very nice veneers, great selection, awesome price. The service is outstanding. My products arrived quickly and were undamaged. Excellent, friendly and knowledgeable customer service.

  4. Nice Selection

    Review by Mary Russo

    Nice selection of veneers, good variety, including burls and fancy figures. Most arrived in excellent condition. A few pieces of awe he broke into smaller pieces that can still be used for smaller details.

  5. Great buy!

    Review by Edward Garcia

    This is a great buy, even if you don't plan on any marquetry projects. Gave me a better idea on what some of the exotic grain patterns actually look like. Have some small marquetry projects in mind and this assortment gives me a lot of options.

  6. Fantastic Variety Pack

    Review by Logan Z. Liskovec

    Picked up a box of mixed marquetry veneer based on the recommendation of Shannon Rodgers of The Hand Tool School. Quality, variety, and speed of service did not disappoint! Still not sure exactly what the first design I'm going to use it for is, but I have no doubt I've got all the pieces I'll need to get it done!

  7. Great Marquetry Pack

    Review by Gary Goldsmith

    I was really surprised with the quantity, quality, and wide selection of veneers in this pack (purchased November 2018). I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in marquetry and wants to get a great start with a fine selection of veneers.

  8. Great Variety Pack

    Review by David Manley

    Great selection, just what I wanted. Striped, burls and some birdseye. As with other orders, very fast service. I can't wait to start my next project.

  9. Worth the Money and Time Spent Finding

    Review by Ryan Phillips

    There's not enough character length and the space to write the review. Everything from the customer service to the product was spectacular and very well worth the money spent.

  10. Awesome

    Review by Justin L. McCracken

    Box of wood was awesome. Lots of beautiful wood. Now all I have to is get it put into rings. Order was as advertised and shipped in a timely manner.Thanks Joe.

  11. Rings True

    Review by Joey Wade

    I’m a high school shop teacher and this assortment is making some nice veneer rings! My students love the options! And I am impressed with the quality of the selections.

  12. California Maker Review

    Review by James Reese

    Beautiful veneer. Carefully packed all usable pieces. Big variety of species. Some I’ve never seen before. Will use these for small boxes and inlay in some of my furniture pieces. Now I want a Vacuum press and large sheets of veneer.

  13. Extremely Impressed!

    Review by David Ryan

    I received this today and am just incredibly impressed. There is plenty of variety and the proper amount of repetition so I can replicate projects. I absolutely would buy this again.

  14. Just What I Needed

    Review by Jim Horton

    As an novice marquetry artist, I needed a variety of wood veneers to choose from. This sample box of veneers was just what I needed! It has a HUGE amount of different types and colors. The price was an added bonus. Thank you Veneer Supplies!

  15. Even Better Than Anticipated

    Review by Dylan Mueller

    As I divided my assortment of veneer between common (unfigured domestics) and prime (burls, figured, rare exotics), I found the stacks nearly equal. As others noted, there were many sequential mini-packs. Overall the value in these boxes is flat out unheard of.

  16. Awesome Bargain!

    Review by Bruce Rowen

    As with the "Big" box assortment, the amount of fine veneers for the price is amazing. One box I purchased had a nice variety with many sequential flitches, perfect for the boxes I build. Another box seemed like it was "Maple Day", many, many varieties of maple, from burl to birdseye.

  17. Excellent Quality, Excellent Price

    Review by Xanthi Merlo

    I just reordered this product for the third time. Size varies, but pieces are big enough for most inlay designs, and there are usually a few sequential pieces of each type of veneer for book matching. My students and I use these pieces for inlay and marquetry, both hand cut and laser cut in our school's Fab Lab.

  18. 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!

  19. 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.

  20. Review from Inverness, Florida

    Review by Diane Taylor

    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!

  21. 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.

  22. Review from Inverness, FL

    Review by Diane Taylor

    I bought a bargain box and was so pleasantly surprised and thrilled with the quality of the veneer I ordered another one! The second box was just like the first... some of the nicest veneer I have ever seen! All was shipped very quickly, arrived safely! A marquetry craft persons dream come true! Yes this is a GREAT product from a GREAT company!

  23. 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.

  24. 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!

  25. Review from Minneapolis, MN

    Review by Brad Hopke

    Great value. Very nice varied assortment of veneers.

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. 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.

  29. 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.
