Timber veneers are a natural product that compromises of thinly sliced wood that is pressed onto either an MDF, particle board or plywood panel. The veneers we have here at Cabinet Timbers are either sourced from Australia, North America & Europe. Depending on how the log is sliced, veneers are generally available in two different options (quarter cut & crown cut).

The quarter cut is when the log is sliced at right angles to growth rings which therefore produces a straight line pattern, Crown cut is when the log is sliced parallel to the growth rings, producing a crown-like figure throughout the veneer. As they are a natural products, there may be variations throughout each panel.

Timber Veneers FAQs

Timber veneer is a thin layer of wood that is sliced or peeled from a larger log and is used as a decorative finish on furniture and other wood products.

It is often used in furniture and cabinetry as a cost-effective and attractive alternative to solid wood. It is also used to add unique patterns or textures to a surface that would be difficult or impossible to achieve with solid wood.

It is usually backed with a paper-based support material, which makes it easier to handle and apply. Timber veneers are often used to enhance the look of a product, or to cover an inexpensive base material like particle board.

For More Information:

Repairing timber veneer is usually a simple process and can be done using a few basic tools. The first step is to identify the area that needs to be repaired. If the veneer is simply cracked or chipped, it can be repaired using a wood filler. If not, then, use a sharp knife to cut out the damaged area.

Use a veneer patch, or a piece of the same veneer that you are repairing, to fill in the area. Apply contact adhesive to the patch and the surrounding veneer, and press the patch into place. Finally, use a veneer scraper or sandpaper to level out the patch with the surrounding veneer.

Finally, you’ll need to apply a finish to the repaired area. Finishing the timber veneer will protect it from further damage and will also help to match the colour of the surrounding area.

Wood veneers can be protected by applying a clear finish such as polyurethane or lacquer. This will protect the wood veneer from damage due to water, heat, and wear & tear.

Additionally, it is important to avoid using harsh abrasives or chemical cleaners on veneer, as these can damage the surface of the veneer.

Wood veneers can be glued to a variety of surfaces, including particle board, plywood, and MDF, using common practices such as either a contact adhesive or a heat-activated adhesive.

Contact adhesive is a glue that is applied directly to the substrate (the surface you are applying the veneer to) and the veneer itself. The iron-on adhesive is applied to the veneer, and then the veneer is heated with a hand-held iron to activate the adhesive and bond it to the substrate.

Yes, you can paint over veneers, as long as the veneers are still presentable. Before applying paint, it is important to prepare the veneer surface by sanding and cleaning it.

Once the surface is clean and dry, you can apply a primer, followed by the paint of your choice.

Wood veneer sheets come in a variety of sizes and thicknesses, from thin 0.6mm veneers to thicker 1.5mm veneers.

Sheets typically come in at  2400×1200, but larger or custom-sized sheets can be specially ordered. The type of wood used for the veneer will also be a factor in determining the size and thickness available, as some species are not available in thicker veneers.
