Stone VeneerThis is a genuine slate veneer applied to a fleece backing using a state of the art quarrying and peeling process. Though this is real stone, it is so highly flexible that it can be wrapped around a pencil.

There is nothing quite like the look of wood and stone in a furniture project.

Real Stone, Real Possibilities... 
Though it seems impossible, this is not a printed or faux sheet. Each veneer is made from real stone!

Precision Cut from Select Stone
Micra-Stone™ veneer is the thinnest flexible stone offered in the USA. It is precision milled from a premium grade of metamorphic rock harvested from quarries around the world. The cotton fleece backer strengthens the stone and gives it unmatched usability.

Always wear protective gloves when handling Micra-Stone veneer. Use scissors to cut the veneer slightly larger than the final size of the project panel. Do not use a solvent based adhesive to bond Micra-Stone to a project surface. We highly recommend bonding this to the project panel with Titan DX™ contact cement. Keep in mind that this adhesive will only bond to porous surfaces. Apply Titan DX with a glue roller to the back of the veneer and to a project surface such as MDF, plywood, or particle board. When the adhesive becomes tacky, apply the stone veneer to the project and use a rubber roller to "set" the bond and make it permanent. Excess veneer can be trimmed with a razor knife. The completed panel can be cut to size with ordinary woodworking tools such as a table saw, miter saw, or circular saw.

A water-based acrylic polyurethane or a floor "finish" designed for unpolished stone (available at most hardware stores in the tile and flooring aisle) can be applied to this veneer to protect the surface from scratches. The best results can be obtained with a semi-gloss stone finish. Alternately, the stone veneer can be left unfinished for an organic color and natural sheen. If left unfinished, some stones can scratch easily. These scratches will often wipe off with a moist paper towel. Stone "sealers" and "wet look" finishes are not recommended as they can permanently darken the stone. Always test the finish on a scrap piece of stone veneer before applying to your project.

Suggested Uses
You can use stone veneer almost anywhere that you would use a wood veneer. If you project uses rail and style frames for a veneered or raised panel, consider using stone instead. This makes cabinet doors and furniture panels truly extraordinary.

Please Note
These samples reflect the general character of the stone types and showcase the natural patterns found in each. Some stones have a great deal of variation in pattern and color. These samples are generated from excess stock and are not intended to represent exactly what you might receive in a full size Micra-Stone veneer.

How many samples are included?
You will get one sample that is 8" x 10" in your order.

Can I specify which stone type I would like?
At this time, I only offer samples of one stone type. That type may change as my sample inventory is depleted since I often cut the samples from full size sheets based on my excess stock.

If I order two samples, will they look the same?
The stone is not a printed product. It is made by nature and so there can be variation from sheet to sheet but this is not guaranteed.
