Red Oak (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 Red Oak?
The pride of the American heartland, red oak evokes a sense of rugged Americana for woodworkers - bold grain, good workability, and timeless appeal.

I used this to replace peeling veneer on a door. Perfect match. The product was as described and came without any damage. Shipping costs were the same as the cost of the product, but understandable considering the size of the box.

tear in veneer
When I got the product one end was taped but the other end wasn't and there was a 12 inch tear down the middle of the sheet. I was able to work around it but I was surprized at the lack of care in shipping this product. I have ordered severial times befor and always been very happy.

Beautiful veneer
I recently renovated my 22-year-old kitchen, and I really wanted to save my original oak cabinets which were very good quality but needed refinishing. One problem was that the end cabinets were never covered with real wood paneling, so you could see the laminate, which made the whole kitchen look cheap. This veneer was the perfect solution. We covered the sides, and then stained it to match the rest of the cabinets. I saved thousands of dollars by not having to replace all the cabinets. Great stuff!
