How Veneer is Made

Peek inside a veneer mill, then learn how to order this valuable product

by Ben Barrett

That beautiful veneer you used for your last project didn't just fall off a truck. Somebody had to discover the one log among hundreds that contained that stunning figure, and then it had to be prepared in the right way at the veneer mill. Learn the difference between flat and rotary cutting, how to use the correct terminology when ordering veneer so you will get the quality and quantity you need, how to store it properly, and more. You'll never look at that veneer sheet in quite the same way again.
