See what you can do with Wood and Abalone Shell Veneers!
Did you know we carry a large selections of wood and abalone shell veneers? Here are a few pictures to showcase our awesome veneers and a little description about how they were made.
To make these earrings I put the 3M adhesive (which is included with all of our veneers) on the Mahogany Veneer and then cut the earring shape out with my Glowforge. I then cut the Cherry and Imperial Purple veneers out. After cutting them out I pulled the backing off the 3M and carefully lined up the pieces and hooked them together. The 2 veneers together give it a width of 1/16” which is still thin but feels like it will hold up well for wearing.
This picture shows a tray that I made out of Teak, Mahogany and Maple wood veneers adhered to a ⅛” MDF tray. To make this I just cut out the designs on the veneer and then used the 3M to attach it to the tray.
This next picture I made awhile back. It is a pendant made out of Teak and Wenge Wood veneers and Natural Abalone shell veneer. For this pendant I started with a piece of ⅛” maple. I engraved the mountains on the piece of maple and cut the veneers out with the Glowforge. I then inlay the mountains into the engraved area and layered the rest of the veneers around the mountains.
