My piece was lighter than pictured. The clear coat makes the piece seem cheap and fake. Sanded and applied better coat, but would not order this series again.

@W.Aaron - Sorry to hear that the color of the material you received differed from the photos. Being a natural material the veneers will differ in color between different batches.
We also have an unfinished veneer MDF if you'd prefer to order it without the clear coat - http://www.ponoko.com/make-and-sell/show-material/85-veneer-mdf-walnut

The pictures show the product mate, but my parts are glossy. It's not bad. The thing about the unfinished veneer is that it's way thicker.
In my case, the laser burnt the varnish (which turned brownish) a little near the corners on the cutting side. I would suggest to cut the parts from the backside (i.e. do a mirror of the sketch).

Very disappointed with this "premium veneer." It is clearly walnut sapwood which is very light in color. Doesn't at all match my wood floors or furniture as intended. When you think of "premium" grade hardwood you think of heartwood. I understand there are color variations in wood which I love! This is misleading and misrepresented by the picture.

Hi Rebecca, we're sorry to hear the color tone of the wood wasn't to your liking. If you feel it's color is so far removed from the images displayed above, please email as some clear quality photos of what you received to service@ponoko.com and we'll look at how we can fix this up for you :)

I have to say, Ponoko did a really great job responding to the issue I had with this material. They recut my design and the Walnut Veneer material was top quality. Beautiful; just like the pictured material.
