Veneer

What is Veneer?

 What is Veneer?

Over the years veneer has been given a bad reputation, which is largely unfounded as this form of cabinet is often made from some of the most expensive and beautiful logs available to the cabinet making industry. The reputation gained for veneer is that it is low quality and flimsy, but high end furniture is often manufactured using veneer to make sure it is the best possible standard and produced from the highest quality wood possible.

In many cases, veneer is cut from high quality logs that are unsuitable and too unstable to be used on solid wood furniture pieces. Often the most beautiful and most expensive solid wood logs are only fit to be used as veneer and provide a beautiful appearance after being cut down to thin strips of wood used for veneer. These thin strips of wood are generally produced in widths of around 1/32", which is much thinner and produces many more veneer pieces thnan traditionally constructed sold wood cabinets. Veneer is often a popular option for cabinets used in damp environments where solid wood expands and contracts with the change in the seasonal environment.

For many home and business owners the use of veneer is popular as the products produced are seen as better for the environment, particularly those produced from sold wood. The 1/32" strips of veneer are sliced with a knife at a width that is far thinner than solid wooden boards, which are generally cut to a width of 1/4". The higher number of boards produced are then glued with waterproof adhesives to attach them to particle board and other more common wooden boards. This means that a larger number of commonly found and low cost lumber trees can be planted when wood is harvested from a specific location to aid the environment of the world. 

Venner cabinets rarely warp or split and can have a prolonged lifespan when compared to solid wood options. The use of veneer can also produce some of the most beautiful looking wooden cabinets available, which can be created in designs that could not be produced using the commonly known solid wood materials.
