Here at Theos Timber Ltd, decorative veneers are stitched or glued together pieces of solid timber. Generally on MDF, the thickness of the veneer is about 0.6mm on each side going down the length in one piece then stitched or glued across the whole width. Plywood is generally about 0.2mm on one side going down the length in one piece then stitched or glued across the whole width.
There are two variations generally in the UK
a) Quarter cut – cut at 90 degrees to the grow rings to produce a straight grain effect.
b) Crown cut – cut through the log to give a more crown characteristic.
Generally Crown Cut is on the face and quarter cut is on the reverse, but in OAK you can specify to have quarter cut on both sides. Please contact us for prices and availability.
