Veneer production

Veneers are sheets of wood in thickness 0,4 mm to 5 mm. Veneers are cut from the log by sawing, slicing or peeling. The sheets are then glued onto a board, such as particleboard, MDF board or plywood.

With our own log buyers the round logs are inspected in different places around the world. In this way we can control the whole process from the harvest of the logs until the veneer arrives in our warehouse in Vaggeryd.

When the round logs arrives to the veneer slicing company, they are prepared to optimize both yield and quality.

The veneer slicing is always done with the most modern veneer production technique in the world, this to ensure our customers high demands.

Steamed Veneer

Steaming of the veneer logs in hot water has the purpose to give the wood the perfect processing quality. The length of time the wood remains in the water affects the color of the veneer. The color is the unique signature of steamed woods.

Dyed veneer with endless possibilites

One of the big advantage with dyed veneer is that the customer can choose the color he wants.

The veneers are manufactured through a four-stage process, composed of bleaching, dyeing, drying and pressing. The sheets are lowered in the dye so that it fully penetrates the veneer, resulting in a uniform color and an enhanced natural grain. Dyed veneers are widely used in furniture and interior design projects, as well as in the automotive and marine industries.

Spliced Veneer

Veneer jointing

Spliced veneers since 1972 in all species that the customer wishes. We generally offer urea type glue veneer jointing.

Slicing techniques

Crown cut veneer
The log is cut in half, and the half log or flitch is then sliced straight across, parallel to a line through the center of the log and tangential to the growth rings. This generally produces a veneer with a central area of strong figurative grain and a more linear effect at each edge.

Quarter Cut
Straight-grained, cut at right angles to the growth rings.

The log is cut in quarters, and each quarter flitch is then straight sliced, approximately at right angles to the growth rings. This generally produces a veneer with a relatively uniform linear vertical grain.

Splicing techniques

Book matched
Veneer sheets produced from a single log are placed in a mirror image (as an open book).

Slip matching
Veneer sheets produced from a single log in a slip after each

Veneers in which consecutive veneer sheets are taken from the same flitch and placed next to each other without turning them.

Random matched
Random mixed veneer sheets
