Product Description

pg-pb-veneer-projects.jpgYes, this is real wood! Each is made from sequential sheets of wood veneer selected for outstanding character and figure. These veneers are then permanently bonded to a resin-saturated paper backing which allows maximum flexibility. From architectural woodwork for office and residential furniture to store fixtures, kitchen cabinets, automotive dashboards, high-end stereo speakers and more, no other veneer has such as wide range of uses. Nothing compares to the natural elegance of our paper-backed veneers.

Staining & Finishing
Since this paper-backed veneer is a real wood product, it can be stained/dyed easily and requires no special top-coats or finishes. Aniline dyes, oil and water based stains, Transtints, polyurethane, lacquer, conversion varnish, shellac and tung oil are all compatible with our paper-backed veneers.

Adhesive & Tool Suggestions

  • We highly recommend Titan DX™ which will bond this veneer to plywood, MDF and particle board.
  • These veneers can also be adhered in a vacuum press with Better Bond X-Press™ veneer glue.
  • Better Bond Heat Lock™ and Flex-Pro™ work quite well if a vacuum press is not available.
  • A pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) backing can be selected below. This "peel and stick" adhesive by 3M™ is applied at the factory and allows you to instantly bond the veneer to a project surface.
  • A scraper tool must be used to apply backed veneers with contact cement, Flex-Pro or PSA backing.

96" (measured along the grain)
The actual thickness of a 20 mil sheet is .030" +/-.005"
This is a standard grade walnut burl sheet. The tiles have a tendency to be a bit smaller and the grain patterns are slightly less dramatic than the architectural grade version we offer in paper-backed walnut burl.

    Review by Ted Muneno

    The veneer was as advertised. Nice product. I was very impressed with the customer service. An error was make by their supplier - no fault of They took immediate action to correct error. Thank you Jeff for taking care and great communication.

    [Note from Joe: Ted picked out a specific veneer from a set of pictures showing the walnut burl sheets that were available at the supplier, but they accidentally shipped him the wrong sheet. This was the first time in 12+ years of business with this supplier that an issue like this occurred. We appreciate Ted's patience as we worked to make this right.]
