Veneer Matching


Plain Cut
Plain sliced:
 Cut across the width of a half log, plain slicing produces the look of traditional sawn lumber. The log is mounted and cut along the growth rings, producing a combination of cathedral and straight grain patterns.
Rotary CutRotary cut: Cut on a lathe, just like paper coming of a roll, rotary cutting can yield sheets of veneer with broad, variegated grain patterns. This process can produce a limited amount of full-sized, whole piece veneers. This is the most common veneer cut, generates the highest log yield, and is often the least expensive.
Quarter CutQuarter: A quarter log is mounted so the slicing knife cuts across the growth rings close to a right angle. The overall result is a narrow, straight grain appearance. This is a popular veneer cutting method for red and white oak as it produces a ray flake pattern.
Rift Cut
Rift: Producing similar effects to quarter slicing, rift cutting produces a narrow, straight tight, grain and is generally used only with red and white oak. This process, although costlier due to lower yields,  provides a more uniform appearance and minimizes the ray flake pattern in white or red oak.

Veneer Matching

Book Match






Alternating leaves of veneer are turned over so adjacent leaves resemble pages of a book (mirror effect). This creates a symmetrical pattern and yields maximum continuity of the grain. Book is the most common match type.

Slip Match






Adjoining veneer leaves are placed in sequence (without being turned) so the same side of the veneer leaves are exposed. Visually, the leaves do not match at the joints, but the grain is repeated in appearance. This enhances color uniformity as all faces have similar light refection.

Plank Match






The veneer leaves of the same species are selected and assembled in a dissimilar way (in color, grain, or width) to simulate lumber planking. This match is typically used with rustic woods to ensure characteristic marks are evenly distributed throughout the sheet.
