Jointing and Layons
We have the most technologically advanced veneer manufacturing line in the UK.
The veneer industry has always been quite an old school one at the best of
times and that’s why we believe its important to ensure that we are constantly
investing and upgrading our machinery as and where we can. This not only helps
us to produce better quality veneer layons but larger volume at more competitive

The following veneer matching methods can be applied to single doors and repeated on pairs of doors, over panels and side panels.
The process where a sequence of matching veneer leaves are slipped out one after the next.
The visual effect shows a grain figure repeating, but joints do not show grain match.
Produces uniformity of colour as all faces are matched on the same side.
The process where every other veneer leaf is turned over like the pages of a book meaning the grain is mirrored, creating the visual effect of a symmetrical pattern where the grain matches on the joints.
As the veneer faces alternate, there may be colour variation.
Veneers from the same species but not necessarily from the same log are placed next to each other in a random order, where conscious effort is made to mismatch grain at joints.
Produces a rustic visual effect of random grain.
A veneered panel is made up from four pieces which are book matched both from side to side and from top to bottom.
This method is useful in making up larger panels and when using species where only small leaves are available.
