Natural veneer is a unique material sliced from logs (tree trunks) that is influenced by an individual tree’s reaction to its soil composition, geographic location and other growing conditions throughout the duration of its growth. The intrinsic patterns and markings in natural veneers aren’t altered or enhanced in any way, making each natural veneer from a tree an individual work of art.
Decorative Veneers are one of the best things that can be made from wood. From picking the right logs to having the veneers decorating your space, there are so many intricate processes involved in making the veneers. The wood has to go through varying processes that extract the hidden beauty of it.
We list down the simple processes that wood has to go through before becoming a piece of art.
1. Preparing the logs- The wooden logs need to be cut in a very specific way. Every log has to be cut in a way that enhances the grain on the final veneers.
2. Steaming –After filches are made, they are steamed in boiling vats, which softens them for slicing. This process can also bring out the colour of the wood.
3. Slicing- After the wood is softened, filches are sent to slicers which slices them into veneer leaves.
4. Drying- The sliced veneer leaves need to have the excess moisture removed from them, for which they are sent to the special dryers.
5. Edge cutting/Clipping –The sliced veneers are not in proper shape. The leaves are then sent to the clipper with cuts off the edges to bring parallel edges to the veneers.
6. Splicing and End Tapping- The leaves are then stitched together seamlessly to produce standard sizes and then end tapped for pressing.
7. Pressing- The leaves are then pressed on pre-glued substrates to create veneer panels.
8. Sanding and Finishing- Before the veneers are packed, they are sent to sanding areas where they are given the decorative finishing.
After finishing up, the veneers are ready to decorate your space for years to come.
