Looking for Other Samples?
The veneers listed on this page are the only samples we have. If it's not listed here then it is species/grain/backer that we do not currently offer as a sample. Unfortunately, we can not get any other samples at this time.

Can I get samples of veneers that are not listed on this page?
Unfortunately, the veneers shown here are the only samples I offer. This list does change from time to time though. We add new samples as they become available. If it's not listed on this page, than it is species/grain/backer that I do not currently offer.

How thick are the samples?
Raw wood samples are typically .024" thick. Paper-backed (10 mil) samples are approximately .025" thick. Two-ply samples are approximately .035" thick.

What version of the adhesive is on the PSA veneers?
Samples with a PSA backing have the "standard" grade adhesive which is 3M's #9505 product.

Can you get samples of veneers that I specify?
I only offer the samples shown here. Species that are not listed here are not available.

Why can't I order a sample of the exact veneer# on your website?
There is a limited number of sheets in each bundle of veneer offered on our site. We can not pull a sheet from a veneer bundle to send as a sample because it would create inaccuracies in the listed sheet count.

But other companies offer actual samples of the exact veneer, don't they?
Other companies may own the whole log. I only buy the best bundles from the log and so I don't have any to give away as samples.

Product Reviews

  1. Great company, great product, and great service!

    Review by Rick Ault

    Great shopping experience for a high quality product that was shipped quickly and accurately. I use a lot of small pieces of veneer and this is the most economical solution for me. I appreciate the options Veneer Supplies provides its customers and look forward to doing business with them in the future.

  2. The Best

    Review by Theo Padouvas

    Ordered three veneer samples. All of them were very nice quality and shipped quickly. I have ordered veneers from veneer supplies before and I'm never disappointed. Would recommend them to everyone.

  3. Fast shipping...

    Review by Judy Roberts

    Fast shipping, received all samples in good shape. What a great way to get a feel for the different veneers before investing in a large piece. I will be ordering more in the future.

  4. Impressed with the Samples

    Review by Alex Iheaka

    I ordered two samples, a paperback bubinga and red oak paper-backed as well. The quality of these veneers are remarkable. When ready I will be ordering full sheets. By the way, the samples arrived in just a few days.

  5. Used for Small Repair

    Review by Kris Campion

    Veneers were packaged well and delivered in a timely manner. The looked as advertised. I used them for some small repair work that included a 3/4” qtr round edge. Worked perfect for my application. Thanks for the great product.

  6. See and Finish an Exotic Wood Choice

    Review by Dave Domm

    I didn't know what some of the choices looked like, had never heard of some of them. The samples allowed me to see a couple of choices.
    I decided not to buy what I thought to be my first choice of veneer and chose my second (which was not offered as a sample). One of the two samples I bought is now blocking the touchpad on my laptop to keep from inadvertently hitting it. I'll find uses for the rest of the samples too.

  7. Quick and Easy to Order

    Review by Rachel Mast

    We are a commercial mill work company that needs to make a lot of samples quickly. When I need a species that we don't typically stock, I order them from They arrive within days and are great quality. Thank you!!

  8. Very Responsive

    Review by M Mcginnis

    Joe was very responsive and helpful by email and the sample products were received promptly. The cost was reasonable and I hope to order again soon as this is only one of a few places that I have been able to locate this type of veneer.

  9. Great

    Review by Joe Szuecs

    It's great that they offer these. I got to check out the look of a few veneers without having to commit to a full sheet. In my case, saved me a bunch of money since none of the veneers would have worked for me.

  10. Always a Pleasure

    Review by Les Nightingill

    Samples are a very economical way to get a look at these beautiful veneers. And doing business with Joe and Christine is always a pleasure. They ship very promptly.

  11. Excellent Product and Service

    Review by George Dolezal

    The product was exactly as described. Shipping was lightning fast. It is a pleasure doing business with Joe. I have ordered products from Joe in the past and the product quality has always been very good and service has been outstanding.

  12. Ribbon Mahogany for an Empire Side Table c 1820-1830

    Review by David John Aldrich

    I needed thick ribbon mahogany for veneer repair on an Empire hexagonal side table. The sample piece was a great match.

  13. Even though I’m a novice, I still know quality when I see it!

    Review by Kym McMillan

    I’m quite the novice in working with veneers, not quite sure what I would get, but the sample came quickly and it was just what I needed to do the repair on my project. It was well wrapped and protected.

  14. Especially Happy

    Review by Sean Igo

    Beautiful samples, quick shipping. Especially happy with the birdseye maple and the teak - gorgeous!

    I'm just starting out in marquetry and these will make fantastic backgrounds and pieces.

  15. Best Products -Best Service

    Review by Richard Segal

    Excellent products, Joe has always shipped prompty and service is second to none. Will only buy from them.

  16. Thank You Joe and Christine for Great Service

    Review by Dan Edwards

    My first order (just a few samples) and I was surprised at the quick shipping and quality of same. I ordered on a Sunday night 4/15, got order received confirmation Monday, got order shipped email Tuesday with a 7-10 day expected arrival date and received the goods Wednesday. AND it has taken me longer to write this note of thanks as today is Saturday 4/21. If that is not good service I have no idea what is. The samples I ordered were excellent, much better than I expected, I have gotten some pitiful samples of material from others.

  17. Veneer Samples for Stereo Speakers

    Review by Thom Walker

    Ordered 3 different veneer samples to get a feel for the various stiffnesses of the backings, etc. They came quickly and were very helpful!

  18. No Problems - Good Service

    Review by Karen Dudley

    I order 12 sample species which were shipped the same day that I ordered them. Good communication from this company. The samples were packaged very well and were delivered without any damage.

  19. Review from Burbank, CA

    Review by Julio Melgar

    I ordered flat cut white oak (PB). Order was processed quickly and arrived in a timely basis. The sample itself was of good quality and packed well. No Damage. I will definitely come back to Veneer Supplies for my future veneer needs.

    Review by Crystal Roth

    Absolutely beautiful pieces! I ordered these Tuesday night and received them Friday morning. This is my go-to place to buy veneers!

  23. Review from Philadelphia, PA

    Review by J Gibbs

    The individual wood veer samples are a good way to see a veneer that isn't included in the full sample binder, as well as be able to give a copy to your client to keep. Great service and well priced!

  24. Review from West Salem, NC

    Review by Lou Hutson

    I am so thankful that I found this website. I make and sell small keepsake boxes at the our local craft shop. I have been using the small samples of various species and they are great! The size, 8" x 10" are perfect for the lids and add a special touch. When I order, the samples are flawless and the shipping is fast. What more can a guy ask for?
