    Does anyone know where to get a quality Rosewood veneer online? I realize it might be expensive but I just love this look! If you could point me to a web address and an approximate cost for a 4' x 8' sheet, that would be great.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Jeffrey,
    Check out www.tapeease.com. I've bought several sheets of veneer from them. Dave Daus is a great guy to work with. I'm not sure, but I believe rosewood is around $130-$150 for a 4x8 sheet.

    Brian,

    Do you use the paper back or 2ply wood?

    I would like to use the 2 ply, but am concerned about bending a 3/4" radius.

    Charles,
    Check out the pics here of the GR Research AV1 enclosures that I built. I used a 3/4" radius on the vertical edges and wrapped NBL maple veneer that I bought from Tape-Ease. They were very easy to do and worked beautifully! I have not yet used the newer 2-ply veneer that Tape-Ease is selling. Were you referring to this or to the NBL veneer?
    In the future I will be using 10-mil paperbacked veneer as we will be building the cabinets with only a 1/2" radius.

    Brian,

    Very nice that's exactly what I'm planning on doing, but I'm going to roundover the top. According to the Tapease web site the NBL can be used with a minimum 3" radius. Looks like I'll be ordering the NBL.

    Thanks,

    Lee

    Charles,

    I actually know a guy that wrapped the NBL around a 1/2" radius (well, I did it too but didn't come out too good). He wet the veneer where the roundover was to take place. The pics looked like it turned out pretty well.
