Jointed Veneer Layons & Paperbacked Veneers

Jointed veneer layons can be supplied to any size required, using any of our full range of 350+ veneers . Veneers are trimmed in order to prepare clean and straight edges and these prepared veneers are then jointed by one of the following methods.

Stitched Veneers:

The oldest method to join veneers involves applying a thin thread that has been impregnated with a strong glue to the back of the veneers, in the form of a zig-zag pattern. Stitching is flexible and allows jointing of the more wavy and irregular veneers and the more figured or interesting the veneer, the more likely it is that the veneers will be stitched - burrs are a good example of this.

Edge Jointed Veneers

This more modern method, involves the application of a very thin layer of strong acting glue to the edges of each piece of prepared veneer and then joining the veneers using a special machine under pressure and heat. Ruckle joints are used with veneers that are stable and flat, as the join must be accurate between adjoining veneers, and avoids possible telegraphing of stitching thread through the veneer, which can sometimes occur with very thin or light coloured veneers.


We supply veneer layons with our range of inlays inserted into the face of veneer layons, in any configuration that you desire, for example to give a panelling effect, or simply as vertical or horizontal lines across the face.

Paperbacked Veneers:

Jointed and inlaid veneers can be supplied pre-bonded onto 1000mil (0.025mm) thick paper that has been specially designed for this purpose. The process involved in producing this material takes out any ripples or other uneven characteristics that usually make veneering onto an existing substrate difficult, and allows for easy bonding of veneers to existing curves and other shapes that would be otherwise complicated.

NB: Due to the way these products are produced, they are generally supplied in an unsanded state, with the joints protected by veneer jointing tape - after bonding to the substrate, this will be removed easily upon sanding. In some cases the veneer may tend to curve slightly away from the paper as only one side has been faced with veneer.


There are no standard panel sizes, as everything is made to special order and standard veneer thickness is 0.55-0.7mm, depending upon the specie, although some veneers are also available up to 2.5mm thick.
