Wood Veneer Cabinets
Wood veneer is a thin sheet of solid wood peeled from a log. It is typically applied to plywood or particleboard with glue to give it strength. It is also used to give less spectacular wood the appearance of fine, attractively grained hardwood. For example, thin sheets of cheery or oak can be used to cover up an ordinary cabinet door to make the door look as if it's made of solid hardwood. Interiors can be covered as well and enjoyed through glass doors.
Wood veneer costs less than solid wood, its uniform in finish and its grain is very consistent. Also, using wood veneer in cabinet doors provides constancy by minimizing its shrinking and expansion in climate changes which ultimately eliminates cracking and splitting.
A stain can be added to wood veneer to blend doors to the rest of the cabinet structure. When using a stain, you want to make to sure both the veneer and the door are made from the same wood species.
