Our hardwood veneer facility in Munising, Michigan manufactures beautiful maple and other hardwood veneers under stringent quality control measures. With high-end splicing and pressing technology, we have expanded the range of applications for spliced veneer.
In addition to what we manufacture, we offer other specialty and imported species upon inquiry. Most are available in rotary, spliced, or plain-sliced form.
We splice most species, and use rotary cutting mainly for maple, birch, red oak, cherry, and beech.
For rotary cuts, we use a unique process to produce a multi-grained veneer that is graded and sorted by hand, ensuring a reliable grain pattern on each and every panel.
The log is centered in the lathe and turned against a knife blade at a slight angle following the log’s annular growth rings, creating a multi-patterned grain veneer.
Large surface applications where a broad grain pattern will suffice.
We offer our rotary cut veneers as whole piece faces or cut them into narrow widths to make later into spliced veneers.
