Veneer refers to very thin slices of wood typically between 0.5 to 1mm in thickness. They are obtained either by peeling a tree log or by slicing large rectangular blocks of wood. Nearly each species of wood has its veneer available. The veneer has the ability to be joined with other veneers to form a large surface sheet which is often glued on a panel e.g. chipboard, MDF or Plywood thus enabling the woodworker to produce a wooden item e.g. a table top, a cupboard or a cabinet that would either be impossible to be produced with solid wood or would be extremely expensive. If an Oak tree is peeled, then it will produce Oak veneer with appearance and grain of Oak. There is no further process being done to change the appearance of the wood. The same applies for all wood species. They are called real wood veneers.
In the case of technical veneers, real wood veneers of species such as Poplar, Lime Wood and Ayous are broken down and reassembled into infinite varieties, finishes and decorative effects through a particular process that peels the log, then dyeing the wood by immersion, after which the dyed sheets are layered to create a new log (technical wood veneers).
Our stock comprises of both real wood veneers and technical wood veneers.
