  • Wood veneer for hobbyiest

    Good morning fellow woodworkers!

    Are there wood veneer suppliers (small, hobby quantity) in Manila that you know of? Real wood veneers in 1mm thickness by more than 6 inches width sizes. I was thinking there might be some hobby/craft shops that stock them. TIA.

    P.S. Going to make table tennis blades. I have some store bought paddles but the DIYer in my screams to craft myself a couple.

    I did this before, I made my own veneer, although mine is thicker than your requirements. My rule of thumb is if the dimension of the wood I need is more than 1/4 inch I usually resaw, this leaves me plenty of 1/4 thick laying around. From that 1/4 I can easily plane to thickness or sand them. If you needed a few and you can't find veneer readily available, try hand sawing close to your thickness required, then plane or sand them.

      I recently needed a 1/4" thin stock for a project. A rip saw works best for me, I can plane down to desired thickness.
