QUESTIONS ASKED BY CUSTOMERS WITH ANSWERS

Please could you send me a catalogue and current price list for all your wood veneers & glues etc

We do not produce a price list because wood veneer prices change so frequently a price list would quickly become obsolete.
As for a catalogue most of what we have available can be seen on our website.

I restore furniture and am looking for a supplier of "thicker" wood veneers. At present I am looking for mahogany up to 3mm thick for use on a Georgian piece

We can supply constructional wood veneers 1.4-5mm & 2.5mm depending on species
In the main these would be considered special orders which can obtained subject to availability and a 4 working day lead-time.
Special orders are subject to a non stock items surcharge of £15.00 per order for goods with a value less than £150.00.

I am requesting information on whether you could supply approximately 5 meters of steamed beech iron-on wood veneer

You may be thinking about Glue film (hot melt adhesive) which is an iron on film and applied to the article you wish to veneer using a medium hot iron,
after which you can iron on the wood veneer of your choice with the iron at its hottest setting.

Just tried your glue film for the first time, I have a bubble in the middle of my veneer, if I heat it again will the glue melt again?

Yes glue film (hot melt adhesive) is easily reactivated when heat is applied using a domestic iron at its hottest setting

Rosewood diving line

Do you have any instructions on how to use your glue film

Yes, follow this link

Can you use glue film to apply veneer to a metallic surface

Personally I would favour a contact adhesive as opposed to glue film if I were trying this procedure. 
Glue film, like all wood glues, relies in the main by diffusing into the grain of both surfaces and therefore creating a bond.
PSA backed wood veneer [peel & stick] would be a best option

Thanks for getting back to me,
it would be great to see samples of the two wood veneers if possible to see what the difference is between them
  Could you please send me a small sample of walnut wood veneer.

We do not send out samples as they are notoriously bad examples of the actual sheet,
unless taken from a section which shows an average pattern.
This could involve removing a piece from the middle of a sheet to provide a sample
the wastage this would cause is obviously prohibitive.
On our website you will find scanned pictures of various wood veneers and wood grain types.
These illustrate the best representation of the actual sheets from which they were taken and are as near true to colour as possible

Could you please tell me what size your wood veneer sheets are.

Sheets are generally between 10 & 12ft long Sheet widths vary on species required,
e.g.. Yew would not be over 250mm wide whereas mahogany could be as wide as 600mm.

Can you ship wood veneers to the U S A

We can, but generally carriage costs outside the EU are prohibitive

Rosewood diving line

Can you tell me how much you charge for carriage

To give you an idea on our carriage charges.
We use the cheapest means possible, usually Royal Mail/Carrier. If the goods ordered weigh more than 2kg packed they will be sent via 1-2 working day carrier.

Rosewood diving line

Do you sell finished wood veneers either wax polished or varnished

When using wood veneers all finishes are applied after they are applied,
therefore any wood veneers that we supply would be in their natural condition, i.e. would need finishing.
Burrs especially due to there undulating surface would be impossible to polish until they are fixed to a flat substrate.
