The way wood veneers are positioned together can make a huge difference to the finished product. The overall look of the veneered product, whether a door, a piece of furniture or an entire kitchen, determines the technique that’s used. In general, to create a natural wood veneer with a first-class finish, a great deal of attention must be paid to the grain of the wood, the patterns of the natural material and the flow of the natural lines.
