b) Crown cut – cut through the log to give a more crown characteristic.

What Are Veneered Boards?

Veneers are thin layers of wood used to cover base materials, giving the effect of solid wood at a much reduced cost. This makes them ideal for a variety of interior decoration purposes, from panelling and flooring to furniture and doors. All of our veneers are carefully stitched or glued across the entire width to pieces of solid timber, ensuring that the final product is sturdy and durable. In fact, in some circumstances MDF and plywood can be more reliable than solid wood, particularly in situations where heat and humidity are a concern.

Our MDF veneer options have a thickness of around 0.6mm, and our plywood veneers are around 0.2mm, although there may be slight variations in thickness. If you’re not sure what thickness is best for your project, get in touch and we will be happy to advise.

What Are the Differences Between Cuts?

Veneers come in two standard cuts, according to how the layer is sliced from the original piece of wood. Quarter cut veneers are produced by cutting at 90 degrees against the tree’s growth rings, giving a fairly uniform straight grain effect. To see an example, have a look at our Quarter Cut Sapelle MDF.

Crown cut veneers are produced by cutting straight across the centre of the log. This leads to an attractive pattern of crown-like whorls, like the ones you can see on our Crown Cut Sapelle MDF.

Most Oak Veneered MDF boards have crown cut on the face and quarter cut on the reverse, but if you are interested in our oak veneer MDF, we can supply boards with quarter cut on both sides. Please let us know if that’s something you require.

Benefits of Oak Veneered MDF

Oak veneered MDF wooden furniture consists of thin sheets of oak, which are bonded together, with the grain positioned at right angles over a thick core material.Oak Veneered MDF

The likelihood of cracks or splits is significantly reduced, when a crisscross design is implemented. The final result is stronger than ordinary wood, because the glue that is used in the process, is the same as that used in the construction of aircraft and marine design. Contrary to popular belief, veneers are used quite often in high quality pieces of furniture which can be more expensive than ordinary wood. It is a misconception that veneer is a substandard material compared to solid wood.

Magnificent and Striking

Veneer is cut from the finest and most remarkable logs. This is based on economics, as traders and veneer manufacturers are able to make more profit from a top-quality log, which is sliced and made into veneer, compared to if they were to saw the log into planks. In addition to this, some cuts, for example ‘burls’ have a weak structure in their solid form. Hence, the best way to utilise these magnificent cuts of wood, is to make veneer out of them. Theo’s Timber Ltd, ensure that the finest cuts of veneer are used in their materials.

Oak Veneered MDF is kind to the environment

Timber which is sawed, is usually cut into boards that are one inch thick. The sawing process, creates a kerf in between each board, that’s one quarter on an inch thick and ends up as saw dust. Veneer is sliced using a knife, creating 1/32” sheets or leaves, and this creates 32 veneer surfaces, as opposed to the one plank, that you would get from a board using the same amount of raw material. There’s no waist and an additional eight veneer sheets are made where it would have been wasted as saw dust, if solid boards were being made.

Veneer allows the production of creations, that are not possible using solid wood

Arrangements and designs can be made using veneer, that would not be practical if solid wood was used, because its such a thin material and is glued together onto a stable substrate. All solid wood, regardless of if it has been kiln-dried or not, works or moves through the hot and cold seasons. For example, a glowing table top would not be practical in solid wood, as the seams swell firmly shut in the summer, and open up in the winter. Edge banding’s and aprons, which are known as cross grain designs, can not be made out of solid wood.
