The veneer saw is a small double-edged tool for cutting thin hardwood veneer. Its narrow curved blade facilitates precision work, and its elevated offset handle makes it possible to cut flush with a surface. The blade is usually 75 or 100 millimetres (3 or 4 in) long and it has 13 teeth per inch (approximately 2 mm between each tooth).

A similarly shaped tool, known as a French flush-cut saw is designed for trimming the ends of dowels, tenons, and other protrusions flush with a surface.
