I have bought a lot of veneer from https://www.veneersupplies.com the source Stick recommended. I've been very happy with everything I received from them.

I also build a modified version of their veneer press that works great. https://www.veneersupplies.com/pages/DIY__Vacuum__Press.html

https://www.certainlywood.com/ the source David and Gerry mentioned looks like it would also be a good source. I bookmarked it for future reference.

I have also bought a lot of veneer from Ebay and have been happy with all but one seller and he no longer sells on Ebay.

Berry one thing to consider before you start buying veneer for a project is how you want to use the veneer. If you just want to cover a project with exotic veneer then you can buy enough to cover the item and a little waste and not worry about using grain patterns for decoration, but if you want to use those unusual patterns in the wood for book matching or making things like starbursts then look for fletches of veneer with heavy burl patterns or wild grain that can make spectacular statements when covering items. If you want to do inlay work then look for special deals on bundles of mixed veneers to get you started. I say to get you started because you will be getting all kinds of veneer cutoffs to use if you continue veneering.

Some excellent advise!!
