Wood Veneer

Veneer, which is typically thinner than 3 mm (1/8 inch), refers to thin slices of wood and occasionally bark that are glued to core panels (typically wood, particle board, or medium-density fiberboard) to create flat panels such as doors, tops, and panels for cabinets, parquet floors, and pieces of furniture. Marquetry also employs them. Three or more layers of veneer make up plywood. For strength, each is often bonded to adjacent layers at a right angle to its grain. Veneer beading is a thin ornamental border applied to items like jewelry boxes. With Wood Veneer HPL, veneer also takes the place of decorative sheets.
