I have heard about veneers many times, but I never got a chance to explore them closely. My knowledge bank got updated when I came across an article on veneer wood. Veneer means thin layers of wood procured from lumber, that are typically used on plywood, particle board or medium density fiber board to produce panels of different shapes and sizes such as doors, table tops, cabinet panels, parquet floors, and furniture. Veneers come in different cuts like quarter and crown and in different forms such as vertical, horizontal and slip method veneers.

Veneer wood is an excellent solution for people who wish to give their homes a remarkable makeover. There are many reasons why veneer wood is better than typical wood which is very expensive. As the world is facing great scarcity of fine logs, veneers emerge out as great substitute to wood as they can easily cater to the rising market demand. By slicing a log into a veneer, the square foot of "face" material is increased by over 4,000% and a new economy is created for these forest products.

Veneers are typically made with wood like walnut, oak, and mahogany which are very expensive. Whereas, veneer will provide the same look at much lower cost. In simple words, veneer puts an expensive layer over a less expensive inner. This brings down the cost significantly.

Veneers are stored in extremely dry or cool temperature and should always be kept in “face” position. There are different methods of slicing which results into giving different patterns to the veneer including:

Crown Cut – This type of veneer is often characterized by straight grain blended with cathedrals. The noticeable thing about this cut is that it retains the natural structure of timber.

Quarter Cut – This cut is made perpendicular to the growth ring with a coherent ‘striped’ appearance. Because of the low yield from the log, this veneer is usually more costly.

Semi Rotary / Rift Cut – The cut is made by fixing a quarter-log on the stay-log and mainly used in American woods. This type is the most expensive one due to the least yield out of log.

Rotary Cut – This Veneer is procured by fixing a quarter-log on the stay- Another type of cut in logs containing burls and clusters and for Birch and Sucupira species as well.

So, if you want to give your home interiors a stylish makeover, do make the use of veneer wood that is trending greatly nowadays.
