Common Names:

Alpine Larch

Botanical Name:

Larix Decidua

Origin:

Larch is a softwood tree native to the Northern Hemisphere. It can be found in North America, Europe, and Asia, extending as far as Japan.

Distribution:

Larch is found in both lowland and mountain regions. It is a hardy tree that can withstand the harsh conditions of the mountains, where it has little competition for growth.

Properties:

Tannin-rich wood: Larch is rich in tannins, which gives it excellent resistance to insects and fungi. It is naturally durable and rot-resistant, making it a choice wood for outdoor construction.

Note:

Veneer is a thin layer of sliced wood. Even for a naturally weather-resistant wood like larch, it is strongly discouraged to use it outdoors unless it is protected by an adequate coating (e.g., epoxy resin).

Appearance:

Larch has a pronounced grain pattern and a warm, golden color that darkens with time. Its natural appearance is elegant, and it can be used to create cladding, decking, furniture, and decorative objects.

Physical and Mechanical Properties:

Larch is one of the densest and most durable softwoods in Europe. Its resistance to weathering and its longevity have earned it the nickname "mountain oak."

It has excellent mechanical properties, particularly in terms of bending and compression. It is therefore particularly appreciated for load-bearing structures and solid wood construction.

Traditional Uses:

Mainly in solid wood:

Larch is a prime construction timber. It is used for beams, joists, posts, and exterior joinery.

It is also used for windows, doors, shutters, furniture, and other interior and exterior joinery elements.

Larch is an ideal wood for cladding and decking. Its weather resistance and durability make it a sustainable and aesthetic choice.

Contemporary Uses:

Larch is used as a veneer on decorative panels for interior decoration or for the manufacture of high-end furniture.

Larch is also used for sculptures, musical instruments, and other craft objects.

Fuming:

Larch can be fumed to give it a darker color and a more rustic appearance.

Gum Turpentine:

Gum turpentine, a natural product with multiple uses, is extracted from larch.

In Summary:

Larch is a precious wood with multiple qualities. Its strength, durability, and beauty make it a choice wood for a wide variety of applications.

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 used for wood.

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

Use of the veneers:

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 for all surfaces, especially non-porous surfaces, by applying two coats of glue and marouflage.

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, 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.
