Hey everyone,
I don’t know much about veneering and my only experience is with edgebanding. I’m in a spot where I would like to get some maple veneer but would need it to be 24” wide and about 15’ long. Do they ever come in rolls or sheets this big? Or am I out of luck?

If they do, where would be the place that I’d source something like this?

Thanks for any help offered.

I don’t know what your project involves but generally speaking paper backed and psa veneers are OK for things like wall panels etc. If you are planning to use veneer as a feature in any kind of “fine woodworking” project, you should be using real veneer (aka raw veneer). It is available from many veneer suppliers easily found in a quick search and is available in small pieces if you wish.
My favourite supplier is Certainly Wood (because they carry a decent selection of thick veneers.)

Thanks, I think I’m leaning toward my original idea of joining two plywood panels together rather than veneering as it’ll be more cost effective and easier to obtain. It’s going to get stained anyway so I should be able to hide the seam pretty well.
