Marquetry Supplies

I would like to try my hand at marquetry and was wondering if anyone can recommend a good source for wood veneer, tools and supplies.

joewoodworker.com and ebay are great places to buy veneer.

I have a TON of veneer that I want to sell. Email me at [email protected] if you are interested. For specialty pieces, see:

But for a beginner, you'll likely want less expensive stuff and I have ton of mixed material for marquetry.

Another Question

The marquetry I want to do for this specific project requires only a few pieces no larger than 2.5" in size. Is is possible (practical) to resaw my own veneer on my bandsaw? I have a good resawing bandsaw with a 3/4" Timberwolf blade. Has anyone ever done this with any success?

Marquetry supplies

You can go on the www.marquetryworld.com... it's a website that are specialized in the marquetry market. They have tons of kits but you can also find tools and accessories if you want!

Good luck!

I think it should be possible to get thin pieces from the bandsaw. The challenge is sanding out the blade marks.

If the pieces are only 2 1/5in, I would cut them on the table saw. You will waste more wood, but you said you only need a few pieces. The pieces should be much smoother than from the bandsaw.

You just need to make a simple jig to set the width. Like this one.

A piece of MDF. I couple of slots routed to allow setting the width. Hard to see the slots in the picture.

You just want to have the jig before the blade. The picture shows the jig with the mitre gauge, but I also use it with the fence, in fact the fence was my first use of the jig to cut 1/8in strips with consistent thickness.

Table saw with a Hollow ground Blade. I had to cut strips out of wood that were .110 + .005 for a government project and it worked well. The pieses were 15' long and couldn't deveiate the entire length. So I think you can do the same
