Christiana Cabinetry is proud to announce that a collection of 10 reconstituted veneers is now available. While genuine veneers will continue to be offered, “reconstituted” veneers offer the designer some options not currently available with genuine veneers.
Reconstituted Veneers are created by gluing together (laminating) many slices of veneer to create a block. The block is then recut in a way that the end-grain becomes the graining of the “Reconstituted Veneer”. To prevent the grain from being perfectly straight, the contours of the laminations are maneuvered to provide any desired configuration. Reconstituted Veneer may also be dyed to provide various colors and shades.This product allows the “natural” substance to be maintained while offering product consistency in coloration and graining. If the manufacturing process is precise, it is difficult to determine if the veneer is real or reconstituted.
The benefits of utilizing reconstituted veneers:
• Uniform colors from one project to the next
• Uniform grain patterns
• Less costly than real veneers
• Could be considered a green product
Several designers that have utilized these veneers in their projects have reported very positive results.
