Rustic Oak Cluster Veneers 80 x 29 cm

Genuine wood sliced-veneer sheets.

This oak veneer is very unique. It exhibits both cluster and swirl aspects, with a very pronounced rustic character.

It has cracks, holes, and even blue streaks, which can be filled with wood putty or epoxy.

From the perspective of a traditional cabinetmaker, this veneer should be classified as a face veneer.

However, for those looking to create a raw and rustic look for their project, this oak veneer with cluster and swirl aspects will be perfect.

Warning:

This product is unsuitable for neophytes. Burl veneers have a lot of counter-grain and can be warped; you must manage any cracks or open defects.

Like all burls, it is necessary to flatten the veneers, fill up some tiny black knots that are piercing, or use the cookie cutter technique for bigger knots.

The backing grade is a selection of veneer to be used on the non-visible face of a realization.

This grade is technically sound but esthetically considered as the lowest possible grade.

The backing grade may include pin-knots, knots, figures, flares, minerals, closed splits, discoloration, buckled / wavy, and other esthetical particularities commonly accepted in a backing grade.

Burls, swirls, and crotches:

The burls are made up of pin-knots, which gives it its particular character; it also means that some knots are piercing, and open splits are considered part of this type of wood.

After gluing, you can fill the small holes with wood putty to obtain a complete filling, or before gluing, cut out the larger holes with a cookie cutter and place a veneer washer of the same size taken from a scrap.

By nature, Burls, swirls, and crotches are specialties with a lot of counter-grain, and therefore, these veneers are often wavy; even when it has been pressed, they can remain slightly wavy.

To avoid splitting the wood during pressing, it is strongly recommended to moisten it before gluing (the more the wood is moist, the more it will become flexible and flat again).

Once the veneer is wet, you can press it and dry it at the same time (pressing the veneers with paper towels, which will absorb the moisture during pressing) or use a Polyurethane-type glue (often sold as exterior wood glue in supermarkets), which will stick stronger if the wood is damp, it will then be necessary to press with a counter board, weights, and clamps.

Species:

Common name: French oak.

Botanical Name:

- Quercus petraea (Sessile oak).

- Quercus robur (Pedunculate oak).

Origin: France.

The Sessile oak and the Pedunculate oak are the main species that make up the northern French oak groves, with some rare Pubescent oak, but this remains anecdotal.

We will notify the Holm Oak and the Cork Oak in the southern part.

They are traditionally used for building frames, shipbuilding, cooperage, cabinetmaking, carpentry, and everyday objects.

In France, it is considered the noble wood par excellence; it is the Druids' sacred tree and the tree under which Saint Louis rendered justice.

It is especially very present in the state forests whose organization and forestry are due to Colbert, minister of Louis XIV, who wanted a powerful navy and, therefore, many oak groves well organized in sustainable renewal. However, Colbert could not foresee that 250 years later, warships would no longer be made of wood by the time the trees were mature.

Oak is a very tannic wood, and it is the name of the oak in Gallic "tann," which will give tanner, tanner, tannin, etc ... The oak tannin has been used since antiquities to tan the skins. Tannin also develops woody flavors in the wine and accentuates its red color.

Product Description:

Genuine wood-sliced veneer sheets.

These veneers are raw without a finish or any fleece back.

The veneer surface is similar to plane wood. However, it will be preferable to forecast a light sanding after gluing.

The veneers are offered here as wood-sliced sheets of one and unique thickness.

Both faces of these veneers are the same, without fleece back, without glue.

Even if the veneer's sides had been cut relatively straight, it isn't a precise parallel clipping; some veneers may have kept the decreasing shape of the tree, wider at the bottom end and narrower at the top end.

Very occasionally, some veneers' sides have traces of unclipped wane, but our veneers are measured at the narrowest, as explained in the paragraph "sizes."

As genuine natural wood, all finishing products are acceptable as long these products are meant to be for wood usage.

The choice of the finished product must be consistent with the final usage realization.

Pictures herewith are actual photos of the product you will receive.

For presentation, the veneer sheets may have been juxtaposed to give you a better idea of the final aspect after splicing; this is only a suggestion; display it as you wish.

Packing:

Veneers are rolled and well protected in a strong cardboard box chosen for resisting somewhat vigorous handling and delivered to you in good condition.
