Alabaster White Figured Sycamore Veneers 50 x 11 cm

Bleached Genuine wood-sliced veneer sheets.

Veneers in sequence.

While this product is classified as dyed veneer, it is not stained but bleached.

We use the least chemically aggressive bleaching agents possible to preserve the wood's natural properties and minimize our environmental impact. So it's not stark white, but it's still a beautiful, natural finish.

Dimensions:

Length: 50 cm.

Width: 16 cm.

Thickness: 0.6 mm.

Measurement scaling:

Dimensions are measured at the small end.

The width is rounded to the covered centimeter. For example, 15.8 cm is measured at 15 cm.
The length is rounded to 5 centimeters, for example. For example, 257 cm is measured at 255 cm.

Deep-dyed veneers:

Tinted in the mass, deep-dyed veneers allow sanding the veneers after gluing to keep the color.

After sanding, colors will be palish but regain full intensity after finishing.

We limit our environmental impact by using alimentary and natural dye products. This choice made colors that can be different from those using chemicals.

Our production is made in France with wood grown and sliced in France.

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 or glue.

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

Some veneers' sides occasionally have unclipped wane traces, but our veneers are measured at the narrowest, as explained in the paragraph dimensions.

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

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

The Species:

Common names:

Sycamore, European maple, sycamore maple.

Botanical name:

Acer pseudoplatanus.

Origin:

The sycamore maple is the European maple found throughout Europe, North Africa, and Western Asia. It is one of the most common trees in Europe.

Appearance:

Sycamore is a hardwood called "white" but slightly ivory. Unlike its North American cousin, the sugar maple, it does not have "sugar hair." However, sycamore has small wood-colored pinknots; these pinknots are inevitable, and a sycamore without pinknots is extremely rare.

This forest species is one of the semi-precious hardwoods, but in its figured form (less than 1% of forest production), it becomes a precious wood.

Sycamore is called "plain" when it is not figured. However, plain sycamore can occasionally have flames; it can also have shadow figures, which are very light figures not marked enough to be considered figured wood.

Properties:

Weight: 615 to 650 Kg / m3, average weight at 10 - 12% humidity.

Janka hardness: 4680 Newton. For comparison, Oak is at 4980 N, and Poplar is at 1650 N.

Elasticity: 9.92 GigaPascal, for comparison: Ash 12.31 GPa and Poplar 9.75 GPa.

Uses:

Its natural beauty and strength make it a popular wood for furniture manufacturers, stairs, parquet floors, and paneling.

In instrument making: Luthiers particularly appreciate the veneers of flamed sycamore for its warm sound, especially for the making of violins, cellos, and double basses.

In decoration: Its light color and fine grain blend perfectly with various interior styles, bringing a touch of elegance and modernity.

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 wood and can be sanded according to their 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.

Photos:

This photo is taken of the actual product you will receive.

While we strive to take photos with colors as close to reality as possible, it is important to remember that they are still photos and the colors may appear slightly different in person. The screen on which the photos are viewed can also affect their appearance.

To help you better understand the color, one of the photos shows three different Sycamore veneer sheets:

- One bleached to Alabaster white.

- One in the natural ivory color of Sycamore.

- And finally, one that has been naturally weathered by the sun.

Packing:

Veneers are rolled and well protected in a strong carton chosen to resist somewhat vigorous handling and delivered to you in good condition.
