Possibilities with Veneer and Wood

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?
