  • FLAT/CROWN CUT

    Often referred to colloquially as a 'flowery pattern', this design is obtained by slicing the block parallel to the centre of the log. This results in a raised cathedral or flower e�ect by the innermost growth rings.

  • QUARTER CUT

    To obtain this design, a log is first cut into four quarter blocks. Then each block is sliced perpendicular to the annual growth rings of the tree. This results in a straight grain appearance on the veneer

    QUARTER CUT

  • RIFT CUT

    This method is generally used with Red Oak and White Oak to minimize the appearance of flakes in the final design. This is derived by slicing the block at a slight angle by cutting slightly against the modular rays. This also results in a straight line design.

    RIFT CUT

  • ROTARY CUT

    For this method of cutting, the log is centered on a lathe and turned against a broad cutting knife set into the log at a slight angle so that a continuous cut is made around the log. This results in a wild, varied design.

    ROTARY CUT

Veneers are grouped to resemble the grain pattern to give a uniform look and colour. A series of veneers is considered to be part of a group if their grains or appearance is similar. The size of the group depends upon the girth of the log – higher the girth, higher are the chances of a bigger group. Normally for slicing veneers, a log is divided into two to four blocks depending on the girth of the log. Each block is converted into beams. Not only do veneers produced from different beams of the same log have different grain patterns, but the grain pattern of different sections of the same beam also varies. Hence, it is broken down into groups that resemble similar design and colour.

The way you match veneer sheets can create visual rhythm and enhance your project. Here are some of the more common veneer matching approaches:

  • BOOK MATCH

    Every other leaf of veneer is turned over like the pages of a book. The grain is mirrored in each adjacent leaf. The visual effect created is that veneer joints match, creating a symmetrical pattern.

  • REVERSE SLIP MATCH

    In reverse slip matching, the veneer leaves are slipped out from under each other and every other veneer leaf is flipped end to end. This balances the character of the veneer on the panel face.

  • SLIP MATCH

    Often used with quarter sliced and rift sliced veneers, this is the process in which a sequence of matching veneer leaves or consecutive sheets of veneer are slipped out one after the next. This results in all the same face sides being exposed. The visual effect shows a grain figure repeating, but joints do not show grain match. Minimizes potential barber pole effect.

  • PLEASING MATCH

    Care is taken to match up the colour of each of the veneer pieces, but not necessarily the grain. Patterns result in no colour contrast at the joints.

  • RANDOM MATCH

    Typically done only on lower grades of veneers, where knots, stains and other natural markings are allowed. Colours and grains vary, and pieces are often of different widths.

  • GENERAL CARE OF VENEERED SURFACES

    The on-going care of finished veneered surfaces depends largely on the type and quality of coating applied. In general, veneer surfaces should not be left wet/damp or with wet staining materials on them, such as dark fruit juice/wine. They should not be cleaned with harsh cleaners or chemicals that affect the surface finish. Sharp edges are potential problem zones for breaks or cracks in the coating

  • POINTERS TO HELP YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR VENEERS

  • Dusting: Use only a soft dry cloth or feather duster.

  • Polishing: Use a high-quality furniture polish and a soft dry cloth. It is recommended the polish used does not contain any silicone as this may cause re-coating or refurbishment problems at a later date. Abrasive polishes should be avoided.

  • Extreme temperature changes: The expansion or contraction of the timber due to extremetemperature changes may cause damage to the surface coating. Care should be taken in an air-conditioned or heated environment to keep the temperature fluctuations within reasonable limits. Use heat- resistant placemats under hot food and beverages to avoid heat damage.

  • Spillages: All spillages should be cleaned with a damp cloth as soon as possible. Moisture may cause damage to the coating. High humidity, steam and excessive water contact with the coating may cause the coating to crack. However, if it gets under the coating, it causes white marks on the surface of the veneer. Any chemical substances and alcohol should be removed immediately if spilled on a veneered surface.

  • Dirty or Greasy Marks: First wipe it clean with a dry cloth, then use a lightly dampened cloth with a mixture of water and a high-quality furniture polish. Persistent dirty or greasy marks may be removed by mild, non-abrasive proprietary cleaners appropriate to the type of surface finish. The appropriateness of the cleaner should be sought from the surface coating or cleaner manufacturer. The effect of the cleaner on the surface should be tested on a hidden or a less conspicuous section on the finished veneer surface.

  • Dirtect Sunlight: Direct sunlight should beavoided on all internal veneered surfaces as fading, bleaching or colour changes of the surface coating and of the veneer may occur. Excessive sunshine may dry the veneer surface more quickly than the veneer substrate thereby causing small surface checks parallel to the grain to appear and possibly damage the surface coating.
