Abstract : The suitability of a wood species for use as veneer depends on the characteristics of that wood and on the end use of the veneer. This paper describes in general terms the physical and mechanical wood properties, and specific characteristics of veneer logs, that are related to veneer production and use. It further points out the veneer characteristics that are important for use as construction plywood, faces of decorative panels, core and corssbands of decorative panels, and as containers. (Author)
