Veneer Info.

Postby Robert Freemond » Tue Dec 25, 2018 3:59 pm

I've been looking for black veneer for neck laminations & there are a lot of Solid wood reconstituted dyed veneers.
What is meant by reconstituted? & is it strong enough for a laminated neck?

Reconstituted wood products include OSB, MDF, particle board, flakeboard, fiberboard, waferboard, and other products made from smaller pieces of wood glued back together. I might consider it for a peghead veneer but would be reluctant to use it for a stressed joint. YMMV

Thanks, Clay, I guess I should have figured that out for myself since all of the reconstituted wood is dyed - No grain.

The spectraply is normally used for laminated rifle stocks, I started a semi hollow tele out of it. I also brought in some of their Dymalux as a fretboard substitute . Initial tests show promise.
Here's the Tele

Yes It was a 2 " slab 24"x 36" I got from a now defunct business. I cut a 1/4 " cap off , hollowed out the body like a thinline and replaced the cap. It had to be planed on a bias or it would show only one color

There's no indication on the site that Cousineau will sell individual dyed veneer sheets, only their finished product.

Certainly wood carries thicker veneers and they have some black dyed poplar that is about .041 thick. I bought some 1/16" thick veneer from them before and it was excellent quality.
