Provide a Distinctive Look to Your Woodwork Projects with the Best Quality Veneer and Plywood

by Matilda Veneer Manager

Veneer is used in a variety of woodwork projects as it provides a cost-effective solution while providing you the feel and aesthetic of high-end timber. Veneer can be used on a cheaper substrate that not only saves on the unnecessary expenditure of solid wood, but also your money – and provides great decorative value. Here, we will discuss two popular types of hardwoods – Tasmanian oak and birch - and the features that make them distinct in their own respect.

Warn, dense and resilient, Tasmanian oak veneer is used for a wide range of construction and interior applications, panelling and flooring. The veneer made from this premium Australian hardwood timber encompasses three eucalypt species that grow in mountainous areas of Tasmania at a higher altitude. It is light in colour, varying from straw to reddish brown, with intermediate shades of cream to pink with a less consistent colour mix.

The multitude of benefits of Tasmanian oak

Tasmanian oak veneer is used for protected structural applications, such as timber framing. It is also used in high-end joinery, agricultural implements, boxes and crates.

Tasmanian oak has an attractive wood grain, good water-resistant properties, and is ideal for liming. It is less likely to warp when exposed to sunlight, and stains and polishes well. Furniture made from Tasmanian oak is very easy to maintain and is a good option for a patio set. It provides a warm and cosy feeling to your room and blends well with metal decor.

Being a strong and stable timber, Tasmanian oak offers good all-round workability. It can be easily planed, sanded, glued, finished, and bent. All these properties of Tasmanian oak veneer make it ideal for use in various internal applications and furniture.

The versatility of Tasmanian oak veneer makes it ideal for use in the construction of interior handrails. Construction of interior stairs requires a high level of workmanship and accuracy. Many interior stairs are built from quality Tasmanian oak which is specially seasoned for use in staircases. Timber flooring made with Tasmanian oak veneer offers warmth and natural beauty which is hard to match by other flooring options.

Birch plywood offers some unique advantages

Birch plywood is a fine-grained wood which is widely used for home improvement projects such as desks, cabinets and shelves. It is also used in the manufacturing of playground fixtures, sports and musical instruments, and also children’s toys such as dollhouses. The nice, smooth and pale finish provide a touch of elegance to the products made from birch plywood.

Birch plywood offers a strength advantage to the woodwork projects as it is formed by layering up three or more layers of birch, resulting in a high degree of stability and durability. Moreover, birch plywood does not have many knots or jagged edges, so it does not crack or splinter easily. These features provide birch plywood with an unmatched safety advantage, making it especially useful for any child-friendly composition. Birch plywood can be used in combination with more expensive hardwoods to lower the cost of your projects while retaining the useful features of birch.
