What is Wood Veneer?

Buy wood veneer

A lot of furniture manufacturers and sellers talk about furniture being made of wood veneer. But what exactly is wood veneer? Good question. Wood veneer in furniture means that parts of or all of the furniture is not actually made of solid wood. The term veneer refers to the process of using 1/8 inch thin layers of wood glued together on particle board or medium to high density fiberboard. These veneer boards get that grain look by slicing layers through the growth rings of trees. Using wood veneer helps make the furniture lightweight and more affordable, but still look just like solid wood pieces.
