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.

Earrings

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. 

Tray

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.

Mountain

This flower sign is made with Maple and Mahogany Wood veneer and a number of different abalone shell veneers adhered on a ⅛” MDF board with 3M adhesive.
