Bubinga Quartered Paper Back Veneer Sheet - 4' x 8' Roll

These real wood veneer sheets are composed of premium sliced hardwoods that are spliced along the edges to make the full width; splicing is also done in a book matched pattern that's attractive and helps hide the splicing seam. The sheets use full-length slices so there are no splices to make the length. The 10 mil (10 thousandths) thickness paper backing allows the sheet to bend, flex, and work with curves and shapes without splitting. Apply paper back veneers with contact adhesive to make panels of large projects: conference tables, desks, doors, cabinet doors, coffee tables, etc.
 
Why Choose Bubinga?

Fine grained. Hard and heavy. Takes a high lustrous finish. The wood works without difficulty except for gum pockets. Some logs are figured with a wavy, roey grain.

Great wood and even greater guarantee
Review by  S. Wegner from Yuma, AZ US
This is beautiful wood. Unfortunately one of the boards sent was badly warped. I repackaged it and they had UPS pick it up. In about four days I received a good deal more than I had sent and it was perfect. Excellent product and great people to work with.
