Veneer Pendant

necklace on.JPGThis is part of a series of pendants I have been working on for a little while now.  Its stack laminated veneer that you sand through to show the different layers.  picking out veneers.JPGFor this one not a ton of tools or materials needed and a lot of the stuff can pretty easily be replaced by something else you have handy 

Materials-  Veneer-? I tend to have a bunch hanging around the house and the shop, but some good contrasting colors really work well in this project.  If you don't have any lying around rockler has a nice bundle of assorted veneers here if you are looking for something specific Berkshire Veneer has a great selection, but you have to order a larger amount Glue-  I like Titebond II or Titebond III, but any carpenters/ alaphatic resin glue will work. Sandpaper- 150 grit, 220, and then 400 sanding sponge finish-  I used a vinyl sanding sealer (Lacquer Base)  and a Pre-Catalyzed Lacquer for a topcoat
Clamps a couple of flat blocks or clamping pads to sandwich the veneer between handscrew/vise coping saw/scroll saw rasps and files of varying aggression drill  razor blade/veneer saw/ very sharp saw
