Rotary cut face veneer

Veneer is obtained either by “peeling” the trunk of a tree or by slicing large rectangular blocks of wood known as flitches. The appearance of the grain and figure in wood comes from slicing through the growth rings of a tree and depends upon the angle at which the wood is sliced. There are three main types of veneer-making equipment used commercially.

A rotary lathe in which the wood is turned against a very sharp blade and peeled off in one continuous or semi-continuous roll. Rotary-cut veneer is mainly used for plywood, as the appearance is not desirable because the veneer is cut concentric to the growth rings.

Sliced Cut Veneer

Most popular method used for slicing high-quality veneers in architectural woodworking. Slicing is done parallel to a line through the centre of the log.

A combination of cathedral and straight grain patterns results, with a natural progression from leaf to leaf. This form of slicing produces an attractive and regular form termed ‘crown’ veneer. A combination of cathedral and straight grain patterns result, with a natural progression of patterns from leaf to leaf. This cut of veneer is ideally suited for wall panels and furniture because of the grain consistency and the ability to match sequences of leaves in book and end matches.

Sawn Timber

PLAIN SAWN lumber has the growth rings of the tree parallel to the board's broad face. Plain sawn wood highlights the grain, loops and growth swirls of the wood.

RIFT SAWN lumber is cut at a 30-degree or greater angle to the growth rings. This produces narrow boards with accentuated vertical or "straight" grain patterns.

QUARTER SAWN has the growth rings of the tree approximately perpendicular to the board's surface. Quarter sawn wood has the straightest grain, and is used for necks, fingerboards or anyplace where strength and stability is a must. It is much more expensive to use quarter sawn wood because you need bigger trees to get wood that will be appropriate

Plywood (MR & BWP Grade)

AOS Marine grade plywood is manufactured from OKOUME hardwood veneer and is bonded with undiluted Phenol Formaldehyde Resin, which is manufactured in a single stage, at extremely high temperature and pressure.

Therefore, this plywood can take extreme changes in temperature, humidity and alternate wetting and drying which are all the prerequisites for plywood used in marine applications. Being powder proof it guarantees protection against borer & termites. Due to its nature of application it is made to resist fungal and micro bacterial attacks also. This HARD WOOD Marine grade plywood is undergoes to URT (Underground Retention Test) process to test its resistance against micro organism. It is dimensionally stable and an ideal choice for high quality projects.
