Selecting veneers for your project can be a difficult process, given the endless choices available in the market ranging from various species to cuts.

To help you along the journey to your dream outcomes, Matilda Veneer explains the differences between a range of veneer types: sliced, rough cut and Truewood.

Sliced veneers

Sliced veneer is the cut most people are familiar with and have seen in use. It’s a sophisticated choice offering variety in design and an opportunity to highlight the natural grain of your selected species. If you’re seeking a high-end finish that’s both bespoke and natural, this is the veneer you need. As sliced veneers are the most common form of decorative veneers, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to the range of species, sizes and other features available for you.

Rough cut veneers

If you’re looking for timber texture in your project, do consider Matilda rough cut veneer. Similar to freshly sawn timber, rough cut veneers exhibit a slightly rough, textured surface. These veneers encourage people to interact with the product, providing a tactile and memorable experience, and making your design stand out in the crowd. Rough cut is increasingly popular in Europe and Matilda is proud to introduce this beautiful veneer range to Australia.

Truewood veneers

If you’re seeking a consistent aesthetic but want real wood, this is the perfect option. Matilda’s Truewood is a reconstructed veneer, with low grade veneers re-manufactured into a highly consistent architectural product. The big advantage of naturally sliced veneer, aside from its beauty, is that no two projects are the same. The natural variation of timber means that designers have occasionally felt the need to turn to a synthetic product to achieve consistency in their designs. However, with Truewood veneers, you can now choose a product that is both natural and dependable with assured consistency in design outcomes.
