Oak Cluster Veneers 155 x 32 cm

Genuine wood sliced-veneer sheets.

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

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

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

Dimensions:

Length: 155 cm.

Width: 32 cm.

Thickness: 0.68 mm.

Sold by sheet.

Measurement scaling:

Dimensions are measured at the small end.

Width rounded to the covered centimeter: 15.8, giving 15 cm.
Length rounded to 5 centimeters: 257, giving 255 cm.

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.

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 that it be moistened 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 present in the state forests, whose organization and forestry are due to Colbert, minister of Louis XIV. He 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 when the trees matured.

Oak is a very tannic wood. The name of the oak in Gallic is "tann," which gives the words tanner, tanner, tannin, etc. Oak tannin has been used since antiquity 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 as they are meant for wood use.

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

Utilization:

Cutting:

Veneers can be easily cut with a utility knife.

For straight cuts, the best results are obtained with a veneer saw.

Use a fretsaw, scalpel, or veneer knife for curved cuts.

Always allow for a slightly larger veneer sheet than your intended surface. This will allow you to adjust the size after gluing for a clean finish.

A flush trimmer can also be used to trim the veneer after gluing.

When cutting with a utility knife or veneer knife, it is best to cut with the grain of the wood. To check this, run your finger along the edge of the sheet. The direction that feels smoothest is the ideal direction for cutting.

Gluing:

Several types of gluing are possible.

With vinylic glue, the veneer is pressed over its entire surface.

With neoprene glue, apply two coats of glue and marouflage for all surfaces, especially non-porous surfaces.

With animal glue such as hide, sinew, or bone glue.

With vinyl glue and an iron, apply two thin coats of glue to each piece. This technique should only be used if other gluing techniques are not possible.

Sanding:

Veneers and all our products are genuine wood and can be sanded according to thickness.

Regardless of the thickness of the veneer, please do not use a belt sander, as this could pierce it.

With a 0.6 mm veneer, lightly sand with 120 grit and then finish with 180 or 240 grit. With an orbital sander, 180 grit is already sufficient for most applications.

Finishing:

All finishing products generally used for wood are suitable for finishing our products. For example, you can use a varnish, wax, paint, or oil.

However, ensure that the product you want to use is compatible with the final use of your creation.

Look at our TUTORIALS, and you might find some valuable tips.

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 to resist somewhat vigorous handling and delivered to you in good condition.

Prices:

Sold by the sheet.
