Veneers are slices of wood cut to a particular thickness, that are used in two major ways: firstly, for structural wood products such as plywood or laminates and secondly for decorative surface veneers, the latter often having a high value or prominent or unusual appearance. The use of veneers has a long and illustrious history and for hundreds of years veneers were prepared by hand. Since the early nineteenth century veneers have been generally produced by three methods: sawing, slicing or rotary cutting.
