Greatly Expand the Amount of Your Usable Wood With Natural Timber Veneer

by Matilda Veneer Manager

In Australia, damage to engineered wood products can occur for both structural and non-structural items. If you are looking for an affordable material with versatility for use in a range of construction projects, hoop pine plywood is the answer. It is malleable and easy to work with and provides strength to your woodwork construction projects.

Hoop pine plywood is well-established for use in residential and commercial projects in Australia. Hoop pine is native to the forests in Southeast Queensland (QLD) and Northwest New South Wales (NSW). It produces natural timber veneer that has been used by architects and designers for decades due to its various useful and beautiful features.

Recent design trends highlight the natural beauty of hoop pine plywood for architects and interior designers. Perforation of hoop pine plywood is also increasingly used in commercial projects for aesthetics and acoustic purposes. A full hoop pine plywood construction provides a stable panel while a closed-grain veneer offers you superb painted finish. These properties of pine plywood make it an excellent choice for marine applications, wall and ceiling linings, cabinets, parquet floors, shop fittings and high-end joineries. Over time, pine gains a veneer that provides it an antique-like quality.

Natural timber veneer to improve utilization of your woodwork

Furniture made of hoop pine plywood can receive substantial damage over a period of time due to the effects of weathering and damage from termites and other microbes. Natural timber veneer can help you improve the utilization of your pine plywood compared to traditionally sawn products. It greatly expands the amount of usable wood and prevents your woodwork from warping, cracking and splitting as the veneer is made of thin layers of wood glued together that provide it extra strength and durability. Veneer imitates the look of natural wood but at a much lower cost.

Other advantages of natural timber veneer include the below:

Recyclability: Natural timber veneer uses less energy compared to other building materials. It leaves a low impact on precious ecological resources and solid waste.

Sustainability: A solid piece of wood that can only be used to cover a small part of woodwork can be used to cover a far greater area when used as a veneer.

Warm look: Veneer adds a luxurious and rich look to your interiors and enhances the beauty of your home or building.

Flexibility in design: You get a wide range of design possibilities due to the distinctive and unique looks of your veneer.

Maximized use: Veneer absorbs and stores carbon and thus helps you maximize the use of harvested wood.

Toxicity: Natural wood veneers are non-toxic except those made with Bubinga and Wenge. Care should be taken while using splinters that use veneers made from these wood types.

A cost-effective versatile solution for your woodwork

Veneer decreases the cost of your woodwork and does not require any polishing either. It is used in a variety of indoor and outdoor applications, such as creating a brick siding which is lightweight but maintains the look of traditional brick. Apply brick siding to your kitchen and living spaces can provide warmth and charm. It can be treated for extreme weather and temperatures and is easier to repair than solid brickwork.

Wood veneer is a versatile material that can help you get more product from each log with less impact on the environment. It can be stained, treated, and finished just like solid wood. As the veneer is thinner than the solid wood, it becomes easier to apply it to curves, columns and corners in your home and offices.

Why use hoop pine plywood?

Hoop pine plywood is ideal for use in the areas of high foot traffic such as the deck, patio, and flooring. Over time, these areas will succumb to wear and need repair or replacement. Veneer offers a great deal of stiffness and resistance to shock that makes it an ideal choice for various furniture pieces. Hoop pine is light in colour but some varieties produce white colour. The light colour makes the hoop pine plywood easier to stain and thus achieve nearly any colour you want. It has a prominent grain with knots darker than the wood itself which provides a distinct look to your woodwork in Australia.
