All creative and design possibilities given by wood can be realized to perfection through more exacting state-of-the-art veneer production. Maximum exploitation and thus most economic use of this valuable raw material is also ensured by slicing or rotary cutting the valuable wood into thin veneer leaves generally only 0.5 - 0.7 mm thick. From an ecological point of view this aspect is of such great importance that this should be explained in greater detail by means of a comparative example.

For example let us take an oak log, exactly one cubic meter in size. Approx. 750 sqm of usable veneer are produced when sliced into 0.7 mm thick leaves. About 50 bedroom cabinets, veneered on both sides, can be produced from this amount of veneer as well as carrier material (generally produced from wood waste). However, should this oak log one cubic meter in size be cut into 25 mm thick boards for solid wood furniture production only approx. 30 sqm of usable boards will be realized. This is a quantity just sufficient to produce no more than two such bedroom cabinets ...

To summarize, the following main reasons are given as to why the production of veneer should be given preference over other comparable woodworking methods:

  • Growth, texture and grain of the log can be optimally adapted to the production process.
  • Unlimited design possibilities are given during initial production and subsequent usage of the veneer.
  • Raw material lumber is used to its maximum extent quantity-wise.

Over and above these practical reasons, many people are simply fascinated by the endless variety of wood species and their inexhaustable richness in colors, textures and patterns.This is natural beauty which delights us over and over again. We hope it will delight you, too.
