16 – How to Cut Your Own Veneer on a Bandsaw
Original post on our site with additional information, plans, questions & comments:
Ever think about making your own veneer? Well I’m gonna show you how! Its really not that hard and the benefits are worth the extra effort. Making your own veneer is a great way to conserve high quality material. If you have a one-of-a-kind piece of figured wood, why not slice it up and use it in three or four projects instead of just one? So fire up the bandsaw cause we’re cutting our own veneer!
General Blade Recommendation
1/2″ – 3/4″ blade with 3-4 Teeth Per Inch, Hook Configuration (big gullets) and minimal set.

I need to cut 1 inch white oak boards down the middle and need a machine that can provide me with good constant cuts. What is the widest boards I can do consistently or can you go as high as the machine can allow? Have you seen a horizontal bandsaw and is it better to go with this or a normal bandsaw for the job I described. Thanks for a good video!
I think this video has the closest subs to views
Vorbeste mult prea mult si face treba putina,in schimb se crede mare actor.
first off great video , I own a wood Mizer LT 35 saw Mill ,I have some very good black walnut I would like to make some veneer ,what is the very best band saw for this task ? can I do a 12" wide board ? ty n
How to prevent veneer you just cut from warping prior to glue down?
I like your simple home made set up, especially the featherboard stack.
I make a small band saw power feeder in kit form (mine is usable on table saws and router tables too) that would make this kind of work easier yet, providing steady feed as slow as you need.
*Extremely detailed and clear directions **Allmy.Tips** I accept even a child could design a shed using this shed plan. It spares you lots of time while building. What’s more, the cost is mind blowing. I am excited!*
I cannot believe that 13 years make us look so different. BTW. Great video!
Use a protein glue for a better result, hide glues will do
Excellent! Thank you 🙂
what machinery would i need for a 1/17th of an inch thick veneer about 9 inches wide?
Any suggestions for an affordable bandsaw with enough cut height and a 3/4" blade for the hobby woodworker that I am ? Atm I only have a very cheap small bandsaw but I’m thinking about an step up that’s not more than a grand…
Excellent well paced and clear explanation
When I look at a bandsaw on Amazon I don’t see the horsepower? How do you find that information?
Great video! I’ve always known that elves are good with working.
I can’t express how much i appreciate that you can talk to the audience without saying "um" every three words lol. Interesting video too thanks!
What is drift angle?
13 years+ later and here I am referencing this!
I remember doing this with a friend about 35 years ago. He was a butcher with a compulsive fascination for personal, pan-economic issues (efficient and cheap). Butchers have powerful bandsaws and the blades are kept sharp to save labour. It produced 6-7, 10" wide pine veneers very quickly. The bandsaw and shop were being cleaned immediately afterwards…
Was about to complain about the low resolution – then saw this is from 2007. Lol I would not even have noticed back then. Still a great video and awesome knowledge passed on, thank you!
I know this video was quite a while ago but hoping you can tell me what SFPM you run your saw at? Or do you vary it depending on blade pitch/width and/or type of wood being cut? Thank you.
I would like to see this done to be as smooth as a planed surface? you did say glue ready? or do we have different standards for glueing also how wide of a board are we talking about ? variables mate variables like it is said the devil is in the details
I have a Delta 18-36 drum sander for sale. If you’re interested PM me. Nothing wrong with it. I wound up upgrading to a Performax 22-44.
Ohh 240p we meet again
Just use the blade that came with your $4000 saw 😉
Thank you for demystifying the process! You just solved a problem with my current project and I will try it out soon.
Awesome tips on the alignment triangle so that we can create the patterns!
where do i get commercial veneer?
For most furniture applications, they are certainly strong enough. I believe one of the magazines did a test that showed the traditional m&t joint faring the best. But if one joint handles 500lbs and another handles 400lbs, does it matter if all it will ever receive is 100lbs? That’s sort of the logic I use when I approach joinery choices.
With a finely-tuned bandsaw, you can get pretty darn thin. But the thinner you go, the more difficult it is. So I usually like to stay in the 1/8" or 3/32" range.
Best surface to glue these to? mdf or veneer core plywood? And with that, what issues are there with expansion/contraction? I do know that a veneer should be on both sides of a panel for balance. Great video.
I am watch most of Marc’s videos from oldest to newest. Why? I seem to continue to find new tips. This time it was gluing up thin wood planks using tape. I used clamps before and it always warped the overall panel. I bet that problem is gone.

You are a perfectionist. I love watching your videos, they are very informative. Thanks for sharing
wonderfull video friend, im a longboarder and am thinking of making my own, very helpfull, but i’ll be cutting 8×3’s from my local lumber yard and my cuts are going to be 4 and a half feet lol, thanks though man!!!
7:51 spongebob pencil!
Is that the thinnest you can cut at home? Or can it be cut at 1/32?
I started my adventure with wood thanks to plans from the Stodoys.
Marc is right. I resaw on a 14" Grizzly just fine. The only thing I’ve done is put polyurethane tires and a Woodslicer resaw blade on it.
I was finally able to drop $2800 on a nice bandsaw and found this video while looking around YouTube. I stopped watching this channel years ago. I forgot how good it was before all the merciless product shilling ruined it.
is there a way to make it thinner, because I want to make a wooden fingerboard?
