WOOD VENEERS

1/3

        In woodworking, veneer refers to thin slices of wood, usually thinner than 3 mm, that typically are glued onto core panels (typically, wood, particle board or medium-density fiberboard) to produce flat panels such as doors, tops and panels for cabinets, parquet floors and parts of furniture. They are also used in marquetry. Plywood consists of three or more layers of veneer, each glued with its grain at right angles to adjacent layers for strength.
