Veneers can be used in a wide range of applications, while at the same time saving material costs and conserving the valuable raw material wood. But how are veneers created?
First of all, care in the selection of wood is paramount. Only high-quality logs are selected by experienced specialists for veneer production. The logs are then processed in the veneer-factory. Here, the logs are subdivided according to length specifications, shape and growth characteristics in order to draw markings for subsequent sawing according to the shape and heart cracks. Experts decide log by log which technique is to be used for veneer production - whether slicing or peeling - and what variety of expressive veneer patterns can be produced. The veneer logs and trunk parts are then boiled for different lengths of time, depending on the type of wood, to achieve a pleasant warm color and to make the wood supple.
The annual rings and the grain, the "fingerprint" of each log, make the veneer unmistakably unique.
