    I think this is ribbon striped sapelle that I need to put in numerical order.

    This was veneer thats been sitting in one of the back warehouses up on in the racks for about 20 years and have been tying to get rid of it. No one wanted it which is a good thing for me.

    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Thats more veneer than i could get through in a lifetime. Bet you can do it justice though. You sure the first one you show is Teak? Looks a lot like Osage Orange or is that just the picture doing it.
    cheers

    Well I finally got it organized and put away. Couldn't have done it without Norma's help!

    That is definitely teak Rob. Did a built-in back in the 80's out of it. It has a distinct smell and feel to it. The stack to the far left with the three pieces of blue tape is the teak. The middle one is the ribbon stripe sapelle that is in sequence from sheet 1 to 60 and the stack on the bottom right is cherry with blue tape marking each set of sequenced sheets and I offset the tape to make it easier to locate the stacks I might want to use.
