Product Description

pg-2-ply-images.jpgOur 2-ply veneer has a wood-on-wood construction utilizing a thin acrylic membrane that provides the ultimate protection against bubbling, glue seepage, and telegraphing. Two-ply veneer is one of the most cost-effective wood coverings for surfaces that are less than perfect or where exceptional stability is required.

For safe and affordable shipping, our 2-ply veneers are rolled up and shipped in a standard corrugated box direct to you from the manufacturer.

Staining & Finishing
Since this veneer is a real wood product, it can be stained/dyed easily and requires no special top-coats or finishes. Aniline dyes, oil and water based stains, Transtints, polyurethane, lacquer, conversion varnish, shellac, and tung oil are all compatible with our 2-ply veneers.

Matching Species Edge Banding
To complete your veneered panel, we offer a wide array of real wood edge banding to match many of our paper-backed veneer species. Pre-glued edge banding is in stock and ready for immediate shipment. These rolls are very easy to apply and are sold in small, wide, and standard sizes. Non-glued and pre-finished edge bandings are also in stock.

Adhesive & Tool Suggestions

  • We highly recommend Titan DX™ for bonding cross grain two-ply veneer to plywood, MDF, and particle board. This adhesive is not suitable for use parallel grain two-ply veneer. A scraper tool must be used to apply backed veneers with contact cement.
  • Two-ply veneers can also be adhered in a vacuum press with Better Bond™ X-Press adhesive.
  • Many users find a flush-cutting spiral router bit to be the best tool for trimming a veneered panel.

Backer Direction: Cross Grain - The backer veneer is applied perpendicular to the face veneer. This option allows maximum rigidity and stability without risk of tearing. With this type, the glue line between the plies is more noticeable.
Parallel Grain - The backer veneer is applied with the grain in the same direction as the face veneer. With this option, the veneer is more flexible along its length and can be more easily formed around curved projects.
Note: The backer veneer is not the same species as the face veneer.
Matching Option:

Select this option if you are ordering at least two sheets of this exact veneer and want each sheet to reasonably match the other in terms of color and grain. A matched "set" is generally limited to two sheets. There will be multiple sets for orders of more than 2 sheets.

A true sequence match option may also be available for this veneer. Please contact us for details.
