Presentation Transcript
  • Define veneer
  • Discuss the production of veneer
  • List the different methods of cutting veneer
  • Identify the different types of veneer
  • Explain the different thicknesses of veneer and what they are used for
  • Veneer: thin slice of log or timber
  • Was used extensively in classic furniture of eighteenth and nineteenth centuries
  • Used now:
    • In the production of manufactured panel products
    • In making curved shapes
    • To enhance plain surfaces
veneer production
Veneer Production
  • Best logs (select logs) that are cut are sold for veneer production
    • Veneer logs are debarked, cut to length, and then softened by immersion in hot water or by steaming before veneer is cut from them
      • Called peeler blocks
  • Highly decorative veneers are also cut from burl, crotch, and butt, or stump, wood
veneer production continued
Veneer Production (continued)
  • Veneer cut from burls has a circling, wavy, knotty pattern
  • Veneer cut from crotch wood exhibits a highly figured V-grain, sometimes called a flame pattern
  • Veneer cut from the stump has a wrinkled line pattern
veneer production continued1
Veneer Production (continued)
  • Three ways of cutting veneer
    • Rotary cutting, slicing, and stay-log cutting
  • Rotary cutting
    • Log is turned on a lathe and rotated against a stationary knife
    • Fastest method of cutting veneer
    • Produces the greatest amount of veneer from any given log
    • Used to make ninety percent of all veneer
veneer production continued2
Veneer Production (continued)
  • Slicing
    • Method by which most hardwood veneer is cut
    • Two types of slicing: flat slicing and quarter slicing
    • Flat slicing:
      • Peeler block is cut in half lengthwise
      • The two halves are known as flitches
      • A flitch is attached to a flitch table that moves up and down against a stationary knife
veneer production continued3
Veneer Production (continued)
  • Slicing (continued)
    • Quarter slicing:
      • Same as flat slicing except that the log is quartered rather than halved
      • Results in a far different look than plain slicing produces
veneer production continued4
Veneer Production (continued)
  • Stay-log cutting
    • Log may or may not be cut into flitches first
    • Either the log or the flitch is mounted on a lathe with an eccentric chuck and swung against the knife
    • Three different patterns may be produced: rift, half round, and back-cut
veneer production continued5
Veneer Production (continued)
  • Stay-log cutting (continued)
    • Rift cutting:
      • Cutting at a 45° angle to the annual rings
      • Log is first quartered into four flitches
      • Results in a very straight-grained veneer
    • Half-round cuts
      • Produce a large U-patterned grain
      • Peeler block is halved, and cuts are made from the rounded side of the flitch
veneer production continued6
Veneer Production (continued)
  • Stay-log cutting (continued)
    • Back cutting:
      • Peeler block is cut in half lengthwise
      • Cuts are taken from the flat part of the flitch
      • Produces grain pattern very similar to that found in flat-sliced veneer
veneer production continued7
Veneer Production (continued)
  • After veneer is cut, it is clipped to various widths; defects are cut out
  • Next, veneer is dried to less than 10 percent moisture content
  • Once dry, it is clipped to length
veneer production continued8
Veneer Production (continued)
  • Veneer thicknesses
    • 1/10˝ to 3/16˝ thick: thickest veneer; used as plies in plywood
    • 1/28˝ to 1/40˝ thick: used to enhance plain surfaces or used as face and back veneers in the production of cabinet plywood
    • 1/40˝ to 1/100˝ thick: thinnest veneer; used to make reinforced veneers
  • Veneer: thin slice of wood ranging in thickness from 1/100 to 3/16 of an inch
  • Veneer is produced from the highest quality logs
  • Veneer is cut by one of three methods: rotary cutting, slicing, or stay-log cutting
  • Veneer is sliced in different thicknesses for different applications
