It didn’t dawn on me until recently the things I could do that relate to the things I have loved for a long time. Brandon Sanderson’s books, the Stormlight Archive, are some of the best out there. Book 4 is coming this November!
What about the sticky-back veneer I already have? I received two veneer sheets in the sample pack when I first bought Dawnbreaker… Used it once xD that might stick nicely together. I’ve never engraved it though!
As I do too unless there is reason to do otherwise like more exotic woods or in that case wood as paper. Though I bought some Mahogany from them that is 1/16 and is bot a good mahogany (doesn’t become ash) and the grain is so twisted up that it is reasonably crack resistant.
Have you ordered from here before? I’m always nervous about trying new places, but I’ve been looking for thin veneer lately. I followed the link and ordered from their remnants just to try it out. Thanks for the link!
Nice, I’m really looking forward to it now. I think I ordered one pack of bookmark size in that light colored specialty wood, business card size in that pretty cedar, and I think a pack or maple or birch in the 5x7 size. Not sure what I’ll do with it yet.
A client has been asking if I have anything thinner than 1/8" wood for her dollhouse designs. She wants to add decorative trim. That is one application, I need to make sure they don’t blow away while cutting. I think will make a few business cards, since I never really make the plunge to get it done before… The rest, not sure yet. Postcards seem like a fun idea.
I’m still looking for the books. I thought I could have the library deliver it to me, but they only have the audio book or ebook, and reading things on my phone is difficult. Audio book may be an option, but I usually like reading it myself first before I get someone else’s take on what it should sound like.
