0.5mm called micro veneers.

2.Classification by manufacturing methods

It can be divided into slicing veneer, rotary cutting veneer, sawing wood and semicircle cutting veneer. Slicing is the main method to produce it.

3. Classification by morphology

(technical veneers), spliced veneers, and rolling veneers (non-woven fabrics veneers).

On the part of the later growth of bark , and with the feature of dark color, dense structure, hard material, it called latewood(autumn wood, summer wood).

3. Sapwood and heartwood.

The part near bark, whose color is light, is more moist when the trees cut down, called sapwood. While the part around the pith, whose color is dark, is less moist, called heartwood.


Production Process


Sliced veneers manufacturing process

Generally, Slicing is the main method to machine the veneers. The working procedure is as follows:


Logs truncated cut softened (steamed or boiled) sliced dried (or not dried) cut grading - inspection packaging storage


Rotary cutting veneers manufacturing process


Logs truncated pull the outer circle soften (steam or boiled) rotary cutting drying (or not drying) cut grading - inspection packaging storage
