Veneer is the name given to the thin sheets of wood that go into the makeup of Oberflex wood products. It comes from a tree trunk that has been cut into thin layers of a few tenths of a millimeter. In the professional jargon, this step is called slicing. Many steps are required before a tree trunk (also called log) is transformed into veneer.
Choosing the wood
Choosing the right wood to be sliced and transformed into veneer is a process that requires a lot of care, experience and skill. It is a very important step that determines the production and quality of the veneers. To produce quality veneers, the logs are inspected individually based on different criteria: straightness, visible defects on the surface of the bark, size (length and diameter), color, shape… The part of the tree that can be sliced is located between its base and the first branch.
Nature wood veneer are thin slices of wood made by cutting or slicing of the log. The best veneer thickness is 0.6mm. There are several cutting methods, such as quarter cut, flat cut, rift cut, and rotary cut. Different cutting methods create different grain of the veneer even they belong to the same species. Cutting method depends on many factors. For instance, log sizes, wood species, grain pattern preference and so on.
