Wood veneers are produced by cutting thin slices of wood from logs specially selected according to size, colour, grain figure and character. All our veneer logs are individually selected and purchased by a director of the company.

Veneers are usually cut to a uniform thickness of about 0.6mm.

There are several methods of cutting veneer, and the method used will have a major effect on the visual characteristics.
