Various methods of cutting and matching face veneers allow for a variety of exceptional options to make any project a signature work of art.
A half or quarter log is placed on the slicer which forces it laterally against a knife to produce narrow veneer sheets with somewhat more predictable grain patterns.
The quarter log is mounted on a modified lathe to produce a cut that crosses both the growth rings and the rays at a slight angle, resulting in a relatively straight grain effect that minimizes the bold ray flake appearance found in quarter sliced wood. Note: Both quarter sliced and rift cut veneer are more often than not pulled from the straight grain portion of plain sliced veneer from the region of the log closest to its center. Every other leaf or component of veneer from a given log is turned over to produce a mirror image at the splice joint, much like turning the pages of a book, to produce a very aesthetically appealing look across the face. This allows for the panel face to be applied with the tight side of the veneer facing outward in order to minimize the potential for a barber pole effect occasionally observed with book matched veneer.


Components are arranged in the order they come from a given stack of veneer that may have come from a number of logs with no consideration given to matching for color or grain. Burma teak veneer, also known as Myanmar teak veneer, originated from Myanmar, is a hardwood veneer mainly used for top grade furniture surface making and interior decoration. Burma teak veneer is a product applied to the surface of the furniture to give it the appearance of being made of solid teak lumber. The resulting veneer is called quarter sliced if heavy flake is visible and rift cut when the flake is minimal. Matching selections may be more obvious in some species than in others depending on the natural grain characteristic of that wood species. Burma teak veneer is typically a golden honey brown to a deep brown color that darkens with age. American Walnut Veneer has been a standard in furniture and panel manufacturing as well as the standard for gun stocks for many years.


Generally, slicing veneer produces more of a solid lumber appearance associated with the manner in which the half or quarter log is positioned in the slicer.
Veneer leaves are kept in order as they are cut from the log to ensure a consistent appearance, making sliced veneer generally more prized than rotary cut veneer. For refacing and do-it-yourself veneer jobs, consider the peel-and-stick PSA backing option below.
