We have been one largest distributor
of Veneers and the brands that we maintain.
Varieties of Veneers available with us:
Veneering is often thought of as an inferior alternative to well
finished, solid timber. But although veneers are sometimes employed
to disguise a shoddily made carcase, they are properly used for
another reason. For structural reasons, many of the most beautiful
timbers are not suitable for use in solid form. Even well seasoned
timber is subject to shrinkage, casting, twisting and splitting,
especially in centrally heated homes; and many solid timbers have an
irregular microstructure which, in shaped work, can shorten the
grain and reduce their strength. Furthermore, even if these timbers
displayed none of the above faults, they along with the more common
hardwood species would be rapidly depleted.
Carefully selected and applied to the right base or groundwork,
veneers not only reduce the cost of materials but also enlarge the
scope of the designer to create fine furniture, much of which could
not be made from solid timber. Small areas of rare hardwoods or
common burrs can be cut and built up to cover large areas. Timbers
can be cut in such a way that, when used as veneers, they appear as
beautiful mirrored repeat patterns or many other decorative effects.
The use of veneers also allows stronger methods of construction as
well as enabling such things as curves or bow fronted drawers to be
made without showing a great number of joints.
