Left to right: 3.5mm Maple, Cherry & Walnut Veneer
We’ve expanded our material selection in the US with three new premium wood veneers.
These high quality veneers have a wood laminate on each side which is sanded smooth and finished with a clear coat. The premium appearance makes these materials ideal for jewelry, coasters, clocks, or other high end products.
Click on the images below or head over to the materials page to get all the details on our new premium woods.
This 3 ply bamboo is 6.7mm (about a quarter inch) thick with a thickness tolerance of +/-10% , making it a great option for home decor designs like coasters, clocks, table top surfaces, and wall art. It’s double sided, so you could also make bangles.
Attention all you DIY electronics geeks, we’ve just added a new material perfect for your enclosures.
This clear, anti-static acrylic has a special surface coating that will help keep your electronics safe from damage caused by static discharge.
Any enclosure or insulator has a tendency to build up a static charge when it’s moved. If the electronics are assembled in an enclosure and never messed with again, regular acrylic materials are fine.
But if you’re moving the electronics around a lot and accessing the internal circuits with test equipment on occasion, static build-up can be a problem for those sensitive electronics. Anti-static acrylic will help keep your electronics development running smoothly, even when software engineers start digging into the hardware.
It also attracts less dust, so your projects will be lookin’ clean. (more…)
We’ve got a shiny new material in stock — bronze acrylic mirror, perfect for fake Olympic medals, commemorative plaques, novelty license plate frames, and ironic bling.
It’s got a reflective backing with a warm bronze/champagne-ish tint to it, and you can get some neat effects with engraving. If you want to see the material in person before you try it out, you can purchase a sample for $2.50.
One major key way important thing to remember is that your design has to be flipped or “mirrored” because we cut the material face down. For complete info on how to use mirrored acrylics, be sure to read the material page.
