There are many smart reasons to use Timber Veneers
Sustainability: Timber Veneers are very efficient and an environmentally responsible, sustainable, economical use of natural timber resources in the manufacture of quality furniture. At Lifestyle Furniture only premium quality timber veneers that accurately replicate the appearance of ourfavored Australian Hardwoods, such as Redgum, Blackwood, Jarrah, Victorian Ash and Tasmanian Oak are used in the manufacturing process.
Stability & Strength: Timber veneers do not move, they do not expand and contract like a natural timber must. Timber veneers are a strong support material and heavier than timber. For these reasons the chassis of timber furniture is often made from timber veneer. Other common uses for timber veneers in furniture making are door inserts, adjustable shelves and structural side panels in cabinet furniture manufacturing.
Timber Veneers how are they made? Timber Veneers are manufactured by slicing thin strips of timber from timber logs. The timber is heated first to prevent the timber strips from splitting. Just as timber planks are cut in different ways to produce types of grain patterns, so too are timber veneer strips. The strips are glued together to produce timber veneer sheets. The timber veneer sheets are then permanently glued to manufactured timbers such as MDF or plywood and used selectively in the sustainable, environmentally responsible furniture manufacturing process.
