ABOUT VENEER & USAGE DETAILS
Better think again if you’re still blanketly associating veneer with that cheap, prepackaged, “some assembly required” furniture. Wanting the exotic and high-end look of a grain or species but the dollar signs give you pause for a full slab, much less multiple slabs?
Then veneer is your friend!
Wood veneer is an excellent way to use exotic, high-end, hard to procure grains and species in a cost-effective and resourcefully-efficient way. You get all the bang for half the buck. As a bonus, you also get to rest assured knowing that you made the most of the tree it came from. Which means more trees still around for the future. Double bonus.
Dating back to ancient Egyptian times, veneer is an ancient art that was once used for ornate decoration on furniture & sarcophagi. Withstanding the test of time, veneer is still broadly used today as an alternative to wood slabs and an artform in its own right. Just search the word “marquetry” and your mind will be blown by the creations featuring this delicately beautiful wood product.
As with most wood products, you’re pretty much only limited by your imagination and patience. From wall paneling to furniture to marquetry, veneer has your back and will look good while it does.
