Veneer is wood that is cut into thin layers of wood, thereby retaining the natural beauty from the wood. Veneer is obtained either by peeling the trunk of a tree or by slicing large rectangular blocks of wood. The appearance of the grain in wood comes from slicing through the growth rings of a tree and depends upon the angle at which the wood is sliced.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Using veneer is environmentally friendly as it extends the use of a piece of timber. The wood that might be used in one solid piece can cover a far greater area when used as a veneer.⠀⠀⠀
