Matching the Sheets of Veneer

One of the wonderful things about a sheet of veneer is that the grain pattern is repeat ed over and over again because of the way the log is peeled by the knife. It is this repetition of pattern that gives special beauty to veneered panels, for example, and table tops. It also cails for careful matching of grain patterns.

When veneer is delivered to you, it comes in pieces that range from 4 inches to perhaps 18 inches in width, and usually 36 inches or more in length. These sizes are determined by the size and condition of the tree they come from. If you buy a number of pieces, the dealer usually makes sure you get pieces that come from the same part of the original sheet. This enables you to match the grain when you lay the veneer down.
