Cherry Veneer

Also available in 7mm thickness.

Natural, smooth timber finish that is consistent on both sides. Each veneer sheet is formed with 0.5mm high grade timber laminated to each side of a 3mm MDF sheet. Scroll down for more photos.
  • Maximum sheet size: 600mm x 300mm.
  • Maximum usable area: 595mm x 295mm.
  • Thickness: 4mm (± 10%).
Advantages:
  • Can be easily painted or varnished after cutting.
  • Low cost alternative to solid timber.
  • MDF core means it is very stable (no warping) and allows for larger sheet widths compared with solid timber.
Disadvantages:
  • Cut edges are darker than solid wood due to the high resin content of the MDF layer.
  • The smoothness of the surface can vary and may require some hand finishing with some fine sand paper.
  • There may be joins in the wood veneer layer as wood strips can only be so wide. They do not usually stand out much though.
  • Comes with a protective tape coating that will need to be peeled off.
  • Is difficult to capture colour correctly; allow for slight variation from monitor to reality.
