First things first: these professional grade wood veneer rolls, of which I have 31, are between 12-18 years old and may or may not have been properly stored in order to maintain their integrity (efficacy and effectiveness). Thus, I'm selling them *AS IS* without any guarantee that they'll work for your intended application. What I can tell you is that I spoke with a product specialist at A&M Supply in Charlotte, where these rolls were purchased, who told me the following:
- Purchase orders show that the amount paid for these veneer rolls were between $80 (for the smallest rolls) and $800 (for the largest rolls and rarer species of wood)
- Altogether, these wood veneer rolls cost $13,000 and today these rolls would cost nearly double that amount due to the appreciation of the cost of 100% pure wood veneer since the early to mid 2000's
- Their age and their relative dryness levels might prevent them from being used in applications where bending/contouring/sculpting/molding is required, but flat surfaces should still be okay -- "especially if hydrophilic methods are introduced" (meaning they're re-hydrated from a source such as cold steam)
- These rolls are from a product line called "Proflex" that require the veneer and a substrate ("a glue has to be used")
Given this information, I'm pricing these veneer rolls at a fraction of their original cost, with the understanding that:
1. You're taking a bit of a (calculated) risk because I'm selling them AS IS, but...
2. Should you be able to (re-hydrate them and) use them effectively for your specific application, then you're making out like a bandit!
Several of the species, including the Walnut, Cherry, Red Mahogany, and African Mahogany appear to have maintained their moisture composition and thus their flexibility quite well. These species represent the vast majority of the 29 rolls I have.
