A seamless wood texture with a wood veneer surface. The image represents a physical area of 598 x 1525 mm (23.5 x 60 inches) in total.

A mid tone, medium grain and coarseness timber veneer, suitable for furniture, panelling, cupboards, doors and flooring. This veneer is comprised of thin, plain sawn, cut or peeled straight grain strips from the origin tree’s trunk which, when layered together over a backing board such as particleboard or MDF, form highly unique patterns. Traditionally, veneer was more expensive than standard sawn timber as it required a high level of skill to cut and layer fine strips of the timber. Modern manufacturing methods are able to replicate these techniques and reproduce patterns quickly and economically. Due to the nature of the different cuts of timber, it was previously impossible to have the same pattern repeated on each sheet of veneer. With contemporary processes, the unique patterns can be replicated manually with templates or moulded impressions, or digitally scanned and etched into synthetic panels, allowing patterns to be repeated consistently across surfaces on veneer effect panels. The more effective modern production methods have significantly reduced the cost of veneer timber, although real-sawn timber veneers are still relatively expensive due to the time intensive nature of cutting and layering individual strips. This particular veneer texture has a warm, rich, airy appearance and smooth, modern texture thanks to its light, cream-brown colour with few impurities and a medium density grain. Veneer was a popular material for furniture in the 1960s and 70s, although laterally it has been used more in light structural elements from plywood to framing due to its robust nature. Veneer finishes are still utilised on cabinets, doors, furniture, storage cates, flooring, wall panelling, musical instruments, crockery, tools and utensils. A strong, stable, hard-wearing, durable timber, this veneer is aesthetically pleasing and possesses a distinctive tight or narrow, straight grain, plain sawn, mid tone, medium grain and coarseness and neutral, Earthy, light-brown tone. The crown of this veneer possesses a higher level of contrast from creams to dark browns closer to the centre, with a darker flat grain of rings closer to the central bullseye, separated areas of lighter and wider colours, bringing a warmth to the material. Layers of veneer can also be composited and pressed together to form plywood, a commonly used structural panel material in the construction industry.
