What is veneer?
Veneer refers to thin slices of wood. According to historical records, ancient Egyptians were the first to use Veneers for decorative purposes. Veneer production has developed into a successful commercial industry since the 1950’s.
Veneer is obtained either by “peeling” the trunk of a tree or by slicing large rectangular blocks of wood known as quarter slicing. From 1m³ log we can acquire up to 700-1000m² wood Veneer. The appearance of the grain and figure in wood comes from slicing through the growth rings of a tree and depends on the angle at which the wood is sliced.
The thickness of Veneers varies between 0,6 and 2,5 mm depending on the wood species used. More than 168 different wood species are available in the wood world market. KALTSIDIS showcases all of them.
