Excellent Product
Perfect collection for identification and selection for projects. My only ask would be for a binder or mechanism that keeps the bundle together.

wonderful reference for woodworking artists
These wood samples are wonderful to help one decide what type of wood or colors they are considering to include in their art work. I made a binder with clear sleeves to display my samples. I do marquetry and design a variety of pictures and boxes for pure enjoyment. These are lovely and well worth the price with an extra benefit of labels!

My youngest son is carrying on his Dad's artistic hobby of woodworking. He passed away this year. I want my son to have this identification kit to help him decide which wood to use. Also, this kit creates a heightened desire within to go beyond current skills! I saw it happen with my husband as he incorporated pieces of his kit into projects ie tables, end tables, coffee tables.

Tallcarpenter on Apr 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The packet contains 13 veneers that are labeled “quarter cut”. They are:
White ash
Red oak
White oak
Four of these are also sampled in “flat cut”:
White oak
I highly recommend the veneer packer. I stain treated some of the ends and it made it easy to decide which woods or stains to use.
Are the samples each labeled by species?
Linda L on Feb 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Each sample has a label on it that includes the species, cut, and origin country. For instance, choosing two samples next to each other, one is labeled: Wenge, Quarter Cut, Brazil and the other is labeled: Wenge, Flat Cut, Brazil.
Are these veneers paper backed??
Tobi S on Apr 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No they are not paper backed they are just a veneer of wood same both sides.
Does this sample pack include a red maple veneer? I cannot find red maple veneer anywhere!
Angelina D on May 31, 2016

I was going to put walls omin my shed (plywood sheathing) and use plywood and cut them into planks to make it look like shiplap planks. Could I use these as small planks for walls as faux planks/shiplap planks?
Latronda W on Apr 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It would take almost 200 pieces to cover one sheet of pky, then u would have to veneer the exposed side or sides (depending on what ends up being visible) Sounds extremely time consuming, but can be done.
