This would be ideal to renew the top stepped sides on my Zenith 7A28A. Width is good, more than enough length and the grain runs in the right direction.

But the shipping kills it. I did ask if they could send it "by a slow boat..." at reasonable cost but it seems surface mail is dead. They did reply though and said they were sorry not to be able to help.

Is there not anywhere in the area of London where you live to buy veneer? That sucks you have to rely on eBay and sellers with there outrageous shipping cost.

could make your own with a straight edge, and a utility knife or a veneer saw.
