Maple (Flat Cut) Paper Back Veneer Sheet - 2' 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 Hard Maple?

At least 90% white sapwood. Known for its durability and strength, hence it's common use for flooring, butcher blocks, and large furniture. It has excellent turning properties, a fine & even texture, and a natural luster. Somewhat difficult to work due to high surface hardness. Paints and finishes very well, though.

wood veneer
Review by  Firstimer from sanford, fl.
Face frames of old cabinets were 40 years old.I made a correct call on the wood being maple . An additional pantry with exposed sides without any wood veneer- this was a staining project. With the pantry height at 84", the maple veneer 2x8 sheet flat cut was the answer in getting the same stain color and same grain pattern . It was economical and flexible to use. This is a wonderful product, and would order again.

Nice Veneer
Review by  MJB from Park Rapids, MN USA
I found the product to be easy to work with. I was able to put a new front on an antique wash stand door for a restoration. The maple was fairly easy to stain to a close match to the rest of the wash stand.
