Black poplar is back in the shop, completing our range of dyed veneers again. Better value than previous times, too, thanks to the increased width!

WYSIWYG wood veneer for bentwood rings, marquetry, crafts and more

Our story is simple: we bought veneer online, and we thought we could do better, because we were never quite happy with what we got. We got veneer that looked super underwhelming for the artificially enhanced product photos ; we got veneer that had bug holes in places we didn't want ; we got veneer that was too damaged for our projects.

We decided to right this wrong and launched The Veneer Shop to give you a great selection of wood veneer, always accurately photographed, always carefully inspected and documented, always shipped in sturdy, sustainable packaging, so that you can get just what you wanted.

Frequently asked questions
What are your shipping terms?

✪ We ship to most of Europe, USA and Canada through DHL Express (1-2 business days delivery for Europe, 3-5 business days overseas).

✪ We ship elsewhere through priority international postal mail (tracked). Delivery times vary, most often it’s 2-4 weeks. We also provide a DHL Express upgrade (3-5 business days to most destinations).

✪ Shipping is available for flat fee, regardless the number of items.

✪ Your veneer is shipped in a sturdy box or thick cardboard envelope to prevent any damage in transit.

What is the deal about sequence matched (consecutive) veneer sheets?

Veneers are sliced sequentially from a log, so each consecutive sheet has a very similar look. This enables creating a pleasing visual effect by placing two or more sheets next to each other. With book matching and butt matching (a.k.a. end matching), you flip one of the veneers along one of the axes to get a mirrored, kaleidoscopic look. With slip matching, you build a repetitive pattern by placing sequenced veneers next to each other.

Our veneer sets are typically sequence matched. Consult the description of the given listing for sequence matching information.

If I order multiples of a consecutive veneer set, will they be all consecutive?

Yes, as long as you order the multiples at once. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a sequence match for multiple orders, because somebody else may buy a few sheets off the given sequence in between your orders.

What thickness is your veneer?

Unless otherwise noted, our veneer is of the standard 0.6 ± 0.1mm (~1/42") thickness.

Why is the veneer I got is slightly larger than expected?

Our dimension figures are defined as minimums. Usually, the veneer will be a bit larger by a few millimeters. This allows you to square the veneer, cut off rough edges (if any), etc. and still have the required dimensions for your project.

How does COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) affect your delivery times?

Updated Nov 7 , 2020: DHL deliveries are not affected (USA, Canada and most of Europe). Postal deliveries may suffer a delay due to a severe disruption of postal services.

When submitting your order to a location not eligible for DHL shipping, please consider that your delivery might take 4 weeks and more to get delivered.
