Petrol Blue Sycamore Veneers 50 x 17 cm

Deep-dyed Genuine wood-sliced veneer sheets.

Petrol blue is a dark color and, like turquoise, it is on the border between blue and green. Therefore, depending on the light or the finish, you will have a blue or green tint.

As is often the case with dyed veneers, a layer of dye covers the surface of the sheets and this time it is rather green.


Length: 50 cm.

Width: 17 cm.

Thickness: 0.6 mm.

Measurement scaling:

Dimensions are measured at the small end.

- Width rounded to the covered centimeter: 15.8, giving 15 cm.
- Length rounded to 5 centimeters: 257, giving 255 cm.

Deep-dyed veneers:

Tinted in the mass, deep-dyed veneers allow sanding the veneers after gluing to keep the color.

After sanding, colors will be palish but regain full intensity after finishing.

We limit our environmental impact by using alimentary and natural dye products. We chose that the colors might be different from those using chemicals.

Our production is made in France with wood grown and sliced in France.

Product Description:

Genuine wood-sliced veneer sheets.

These veneers are raw without a finish or any fleece back.

The veneer surface is similar to plane wood. However, it will be preferable to forecast a light sanding after gluing.

The veneers are offered here as wood-sliced sheets of one and unique thickness.

Both faces of these veneers are the same, without fleece back or glue.

Even if the veneer's sides had been cut relatively straight, it isn't a precise parallel clipping, and some veneers may have kept the decreasing shape of the tree, wider at the bottom end and narrower at the top end.

Some veneer sides occasionally have unclipped wane traces, but our veneers are measured at the narrowest, as explained in the paragraph dimensions.

As genuine natural wood, all finishing products are acceptable as long as they are meant for wood usage.

The choice of the finished product must be consistent with the final usage realization.

The Species:

Botanic name: Acer Pseudoplatanus.

Common name: Sycamore, European Maple, Sycamore Maple.

The Sycamore maple, or the European maple, is a hardwood called "white," but its color is slightly ivory.

Unlike its cousin, the North American maple, it does not have sugar hair. On the other hand, the Sycamore has small wood-colored pinknots; these pinknots are inevitable, and a Sycamore without pinknots is extremely rare.

This forest species is one of the valuable hardwoods, especially in its figured form.

Sycamore is used in cabinetmaking and decoration.

Figured Sycamore is best known for its use in violin and cello Lutherie; Figured Sycamore is so involved in violin production that when a Sycomore is strongly figured, it takes the name of "Fiddled-back Sycamore."

This figured wood has a unique aestheticism and a much sought-after tone for violins and cellos.

Figured Sycamore is a rare and precious wood.

Sycamore is called "Plain" when it is not Figured. However, the Plain Sycamore can have some flames here and there, and it can also have a very light figure called "Shadow figure," which is not marked enough to be considered a figured wood.



Veneers can be easily cut with a utility knife.

For straight cuts, the best results are obtained with a veneer saw.

Use a fretsaw, scalpel, or veneer knife for curved cuts.

Always allow for a slightly larger veneer sheet than your intended surface. This will allow you to adjust the size after gluing for a clean finish.

A flush trimmer can also be used to trim the veneer after gluing.

When cutting with a utility knife or veneer knife, it is best to cut with the grain of the wood. To check this, run your finger along the edge of the sheet. The direction that feels smoothest is the ideal direction for cutting.


Several types of gluing are possible.

With vinylic glue, the veneer is pressed over its entire surface.

With neoprene glue, apply two coats of glue and marouflage for all surfaces, especially non-porous surfaces.

With animal glue such as hide, sinew, or bone glue.

With vinyl glue and an iron, apply two thin coats of glue to each piece. This technique should only be used if other gluing techniques are not possible.


Veneers and all our products are wood and can be sanded according to their thickness.

Regardless of the thickness of the veneer, please do not use a belt sander, as this could pierce it.

With a 0.6 mm veneer, lightly sand with 120 grit and then finish with 180 or 240 grit. With an orbital sander, 180 grit is already sufficient for most applications.


All finishing products generally used for wood are suitable for finishing our products. For example, you can use a varnish, wax, paint, or oil.

However, ensure that the product you want to use is compatible with the final use of your creation.

Look at our TUTORIALS, and you might find some valuable tips.


Pictures herewith are actual photos of the product you will receive.

Although we strive to take photos with a color as close to reality as possible, they are only photos whose hue may appear slightly different from reality; the screen on which the photos will be viewed also affects their appearance.

One of the photos shows the color of the wood after sanding and varnishing.

The sanding was done mechanically at 120 grit.

The varnishing is done in 1 or 2 coats with a colorless polyurethane varnish (cleaning the tools with white spirit/acetone).


Veneers are rolled and well protected in a strong carton chosen to resist somewhat vigorous handling and delivered to you in good condition.
