Veneer is the timber sliced to around 2 – 3mm and glued to panels to make products such as furniture, doors or flooring. Veneer is made either by slicing large blocks of wood or a process called peeling. The appearance of the veneer depends upon the angle which the blocks are cut for wood grain and figuring requirements. Veneers can even be made to look old/distressed. It provide benefits in lowering the cost of some furniture making (i.e. large panels at reasonable cost and making plywood, MDF and chipboard look like hardwood ).Conversely high quality veneers can be used in high end fine furniture/cabinet making. Veneers can be used for a variety of parts in furniture manufacture and are popular on the side of wardrobes or cabinets or for full items of furniture including table tops and legs etc.
