Black Veneer
#9
  
I’m going to do a segmented piece with ebony accents (base and rim), and would like 1/32” black between each piece and each row. Curious what others have used (ebony vs. something dyed black) and any recommended suppliers.

Thanks,
John

Walnut, with the end grain toward the surface should fill the bill, and is available most anywhere.
Better to follow the leader than the pack. Less to step in.

That's where I buy most of my veneer, dyed or natural.

I go to Menards and use this and dye it.

The wood alone is more expensive than the already dyed sheets.

I do not know why it does not show it, but the package has 3 of them.  There is a 1/32 one also but it did not show it either and it is a pack of 4 for about the same price..

All I do is put them in a 73qt stock pan and let them soak in the ink or dye for 5 minutes and dry them off and let them set for a few days with a weight on the whole surface.

I do a complete different job on the roses I make.  I use Aldine dye for those.

OK I finally found the piece I was talking about with the sticker still on it.

Called

Birch Ply
"Nominal"
1/32" x 12" x 24"
Made in USA
Of Global Materials


They also have 1/8" and 1/16"


Last I use both the 1/32" and 1/16" to burn grooves instead of wire (I typed wife so thought I better change it  Laugh Laugh ).  So much easier and safer to.  I have not tried 1/8" since it seems to wide to burn a groove with but maybe someday if it may look good I will give it a try.

I have used a 2x6 pine board to burn the top of a few boxes before and it sure woods good doing that.  Yes

Thanks Arlin. I ended up buying some from B&B Rare Woods for the next project. It was pretty cost effective and they were very helpful.

Thanks for the referral, Steve.
