Natural Wood Veneer
A burl, or burr, is a tree growth in which the grain has grown in an unusual manner. Burls often produce small knots that can be used to enhance wood veneer. At Oakwood Veneer we carry a great selection of burl veneers including ash, elm, maple, oak and walnut. Carpathian elm burls range in color from light tan to a dark red brick and can be used for special furniture pieces you want to stand out from the other furnishings in your home. Heavy maple burl has a pink tone with tight clusters and a desirable figure making it a great veneer sheet to use for cabinets, furniture and table tops. Oak burls are known for its superior strength, coarse grain and a swirly grain patterns that make it an ideal choice for unique pieces of furniture.
What is Wood Veneer?
It is a thin slice of wood cut from a log with a slicing, peeling, or sawing machine. It is used on plywood, fine furniture, and laminated shapes for decorative and architectural purposes.
Before a log is cut into veneer, it is often steamed or soaked in a bath of very hot water. This "cooking" process softens the log so that veneers can be sliced without tearing and splitting. After the veneer is sliced, it's pressed flat between heated platens and bundled into stacks in the same order that it was removed from the log.
Veneer opens a whole new world of woodworking to even the most experienced craftsperson. With an exotic veneer, simple projects can be turned into works of art. In fact, a highly figured veneer can often be the qualifying characteristic that makes one project stand well above the rest. Veneer gives you a unique opportunity to work with some of the most beautiful and exotic woods in the world without having to dip into your retirement account.
Wood veneer has several distinct advantages over solid lumber that can't be overlooked. It is these advantages that have brought the art of veneering into most professional cabinet and furniture shops. The good news is that with the right tools, veneering is relatively easy and it's now becoming a mainstream technique used by weekend warriors to turn even the most mundane projects into heirloom quality masterpieces.
