I am looking for a source of ebonized pearwood veneer.  I haven't had any luck searching the internet.  If someone knows a source I'd appreciate a reply or E-mail.

Hi all;
I located a source at Herzog Veneers in North Carolina.  Unfortunately it is only .023".
I had hoped to find some at least .035" but no luck so far

The issue with finding ebonized pear wood veneer is that ever since Mr. Steve Latta started making these videos (which are amazing) and informing people about the pear wood every single rookie is buying to just collect and have on the shelf.  It is now costing so much more, because the people who actually have it now know it is at high demand.  There are suppliers, but you will have to buy flitches, which is expensive.  Yet if split among others the price may be reasonable.
