Q: Can I make my own wood by soaking it in dye?

A: Yes, it takes acrylic and spray paints just fine.
Q: What types of glue work with this colour veneer?
A: Same glue you would use for your other woodworking projects, PVA glues such as Titebond III, epoxy.
Q: Are the dyes used to create this veneer food safe?
A: The manufacturers who supply us with this veneer confirm that the dyes used are non-toxic but they are not guaranteed to be food-safe. This veneer is sold for recreational parts, such as skateboards.
