What Can You Do with Wood Veneers?

Many crafters and artists are starting to experiment in a variety of mediums. While there are plenty of things that you can create and sculpt with, none give the element of naturalism quite like the addition of wood. If you are looking for something new to try out your creative talents on, wood veneers can be the perfect place to start! There are all sorts of things that you can try out with wood veneers to spark some creativity.

wood veneers can be the perfect place to start

  • First, try making a few things that you don’t often see made from wood. Because wood veneers are cut so thin that they aren’t just pliable, but flexible, try a few curved objects! Try making things like pens, rings, bracelets, bowls, or even lamp shades.
  • Second, update cabinetry or furniture with wood veneers. If you have a piece of furniture that is still in great working shape, but looks terrible, wood veneers are a great way to spruce up a piece of furniture. Not only does this keep it out of the landfill, but it can be a fun and enjoyable practice. You can also try working wood veneers into an inlay of a cabinet or, on a smaller scale, a jewelry box.
  • Third, try making wall art. Wood veneers are thin enough that they can be cut with something like a razor or an X-ACTO knife. This allows for much more flexibility and creativity than constant measuring and sawing to get the right angles or curves!
