Once cut, veneer leaves are selected and matched as required. Each leaf is slightly different but related to adjacent leaves, so that different forms of matching can be achieved. The gradual change of grain through the log gives veneers their special quality of subtle variations. Because of this the selection and matching of veneers for each job is a skilled task.MORE INFORMATION ON VENEER MATCHING
WIDE RANGE OF VENEERS
We have been working with veneers at Shadbolt for over 130 years and we pride ourselves on our expertise. Extensive stocks are held of many different veneers from all over the world, offering a wide choice of species, grain, figure and colours for application to doors, panels and washroom cubicles.
SHADBOLT VENEER MANAGEMENT
Many prestigious buildings use wood veneers in a variety of ways – for doors, partitions, panelling, linings, fixed and loose furniture. Usually these applications are allocated to different sub-contractors, who will source their veneer independently.
But veneers, even of the same species, will often differ considerably in appearance, depending on their source, detracting from the overall effect.
To ensure you can achieve full aesthetic control, even on the largest projects, Shadbolt can take responsibility for procuring all the veneers for a project, planning the veneer matching in all applications, and allocating veneers to sub-contractors to ensure that they are used as planned.
We can, if required, exercise full aesthetic control of the veneers for a project. Selection of veneer leaves is closely managed to ensure good matching throughout, to achieve a coherent effect.
For those looking for the closest attention to detail, we offer a service where the client can come and select the veneers in person in the factory.FIND OUT MORE ABOUT SHADBOLT'S VENEER SELECTION SERVICE
