Adorable Wood Veneer Furniture Pieces
Wood veneer furniture can make an attractive addition to a home with its smooth texture and symmetrical wood grain patterns. Wood veneer furniture is any type of furniture that is finished with a thin sliver of wood or other material on the surface of the piece. This thin exterior coating is known as veneer and may be composed of real wood, wood laminate, or a resin product designed to mimic the look or marble or other natural elements. In general, veneer is used to provide a richer look to furniture constructed with less expensive materials. Producing veneers for use in veneer furniture normally involves creating the slivers from sheets of wood or other materials. To accomplish this, most manufacturers utilize a lathe. This allows them to produce slivers or sheets in any length desired while also producing veneers with different levels of thickness. Doing so makes it possible to produce a desk with a nice veneer with the same ease as applying the thin exterior layer to an entertainment stand or set of end tables.
Many people associate wood veneer furniture with discount furniture pieces that come in kits and are assembled at home by the consumer. Many of these discount tables, shelving units and computer desks are constructed with press board and then covered with a laminate veneer intended to simulate the look of real wood. While they are generally affordable and will last for several years, they do not have the durability of solid wood furniture and are generally replaced in time.
