Zebrawood (Quarter 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 Zebrawood?
Guess where this wood got its name? Zebrawood has a medium to coarse texture and a wavy or interlocked grain pattern. The alternating hard and soft material creates working difficulties, but Zebrawood takes a clear finish without issue.
