Street Deck Maple Veneer Split 20-Pack
These sheets are great for interior use in laminations, as water-based glue will cause the wood to expand and fill the cracks. They are not intended to be used as face sheets.
Street Deck Maple Veneer Split Pack
- each pack includes 20 sheets with splits, cracks, and checks
- sheet size is 9.5 x 34 x 1/16”
Handle with care to prevent these large sheets from splitting. If that happens, simply add a bead of glue and press together with masking tape till it dries.
Use Titebond III for most pressings, unless drying time is a major factor.
Although the label on Titebond III says you have 15 minutes before it starts to set, when it is spread out over such a large surface, it will dry much more quickly than that. Gluing only a few sheets and pressing at a time is recommended, especially if you are working alone.
Best Vacuum Bag size: 36 x 52” Thin Air Press TPK36
As noted in the details area, any splits or cracks due to handling can be easily fixed.
Veneer expands and contracts with moisture. Our veneer is shipped with 7-9% humidity. Keep your veneer stored away from heat sources, and lay it flat.
If your work area is very dry, keep your unused veneer sealed in plastic (a garbage will do) until you are ready to use it.
Q: What species is this maple?
A: Acer Saccharum, or Sugar Maple. Other names are Rock, Hard Rock, and Hard Maple.
Q: How long can I store unused veneer for?
A: Very important to store it laying flat and away from any heat sources. Veneer will absorb and release moisture all the time, so seal the veneer in plastic if the environment is changeable.
Q: What if my veneer splits?
A: Run a bead of glue along the split edges. Use masking tape strips to tightly squeeze the edges together and wait about 2 hours for the glue to dry. Remove the tape before using it.
Q: Is this Maple harvested from sustainable sources?
A: The mill we source our maple and birch from complies to and is certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® Program, a worldwide recognized service.
