Wood Veneers                          

    Wood veneer is either a composite made from wood pulp, or a very thin layer of high-quality wood and glued to any substrate such as particleboard, medium density fiberboard (MDF), or any no added urea formaldehyde core.
Wood veneer is peeled, sliced, or sawn from the log in different directions and angles, resulting in many different grain patterns such as; rotary cut (peeled), rift cut, plain sliced or quarter sawn. The flitches are then arranged in different matches, producing additional  grain patterns from the same specie. Slip match, whole piece, pleasing match, book match and random match are available in most hardwood species and many exotics as well.
Additionally, hardwoods are graded for quality, producing even more choices and cost options for the same wood specie.
All wood veneers are unfinished unless you specify otherwise and are a custom order which require 3-6 weeks lead time to recieve.
Please be specific as to the Specie, Grade, Cut and Match of the wood veneer that you require for your job. They vary substantially in price!
We will not be responsible for the color, grain pattern or appearance of any wood veneer provided for our customers.

Veneer Grades:

  • A-Grade: All veneer splices should be book-matched for a visually pleasing appearance. There should not be any abrupt changes in color or grain between the splices. An "A" face will not permit sound knots, repaired knots or rough-cut veneer. An A face may allow slight mineral streak and/or vine marks. The number of defects such as pin knots or small burls varies according to the specie of veneer. This is the best face grade on plywood normally stocked and is often used for upper-end cabinetry, architectural millwork, and quality furniture.
  • B-Grade: Veneer should be matched for a pleasing color, but not necessarily for grain. "B" grade faces are generally very similar to "A" faces, but do allow some sound or repaired knots and some slight rough cut veneer. "B" grade faces will also allow slight mineral streak and vine marks. "B" grade faces are, often used by customers wishing to save a little money on plywood. Many suppliers offer the "B" grade faces in lieu of "A" grade faces in an effort to be more price competitive. Comparing the price of "A" grade faces and "B" grade faces is not comparing apples to apples. Always be sure to specify the face grade of plywood you are wishing to receive.
  • C-Grade: Allows for unlimited pin knots and small burls. A "C" face can also contain repaired knots and sound knots. The "C" grade will also allow unlimited mineral and vine marks. A "C" face should be a sound smooth face. A "C" face is used primarily on paint grade type panels, in lower-end case work, and for cabinet interiors in upper-end cabinetry.
  • D-Grade: It is similar to the "C" face, but will allow some rough cut veneer and a few more repaired and sound knots.
