A little bit of research for inspiration and ideas.
Maple XO like to recycle skateboards and create jewellery bottle openers to screwdrivers, and I just like the manipulation of the skateboard veneers. I just wanted to look at some ideas of whats possible with veneer.
I like the coaster idea, very simple shape for the CNC machine especially as I’m a beginner.
Maybe not a screwdriver handle but a handle of some kind could be interesting.
I know I’ve posted this previously but I love this, Maybe I could look into laminating the veneer into a shape.
This isn’t veneer but I love it, Its a good example of marquetry using hardwood end grain.
Skateboards and long boards are traditionally made with coloured maple veneer.
A wooden LED clock, The veneer is thin enough to shine an LED light through.
I think making a ring would be a neat experiment.

Ok ive hit the mother load! this is something to try!! Wood turning with combinations of wood species glued together.
Im looking at this and i’m wondering if I could maybe use a really soft malleable metal with this in mind?
Magnets! using magnets with veneer seems like a no brainer!
I remember seeing this table a few months ago, its a combination of magnets and steel wires to give this squishy effect its incredible!!
