For this one not a ton of tools or materials needed and a lot of the stuff can pretty easily be replaced by something else you have handy
Veneer- I tend to have a bunch hanging around the house and the shop, but some good contrasting colors really work well in this project. If you don't have any lying around rockler has a nice bundle of assorted veneers here if you are looking for something specific Berkshire Veneer has a great selection, but you have to order a larger amount
Glue- I like Titebond II or Titebond III, but any carpenters/ alaphatic resin glue will work.
Sandpaper- 150 grit, 220, and then 400 sanding sponge
