Ripping Veneers

Had a bit of fun at the show, ripping thin veneers on the MiniMax bandsaw.

Was getting under 1mm slices easily (and consistently), around 0.8mm.

One setup got me a 0.6mm thick veneer, which I was pleased with, that is until I decided to push the boundary, and pulled off a 0.35mm veneer. You can clearly see light through the result! Surprisingly strong too, and flexible (funnily enough!)

And repeatable- it was not a fluke.
