What is Veneer ?

Veneer is a thin layer of cut wood obtained from one log. The thickness of the veneer is between 0.5 and 2 mm depending on the  wood species used and/or the application. Veneer must always be finished using varnish, oil or wax. Left untreated, it is sensitive to staining and it is more vulnerable to scratches than HPL. If you opt for veneer we will advise you on the right choice for your lectern.
