Why Wood Veneer is The Best for Boardroom Furniture


Wood veneer is great for versatility, durability and cost effectiveness which is what makes it so well suited for workplace furniture. When used to form boardroom furniture, wood veneer can bring a great deal of advantages to a business, including a greener status and environmental awareness – but what makes it such a fantastic choice for work environments?


Very Little Waste

To create wood veneer, solid wood is sawn from a log in thin slices, before being bonded together. This process uses maximum yield from a tree and results in far less wastage than solid wood boardroom furniture. Knotty Ash Woodworking are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council who suggest that ‘wood veneer contributes to a better use of raw material as thousands of metres of wood surface can be produced from one tree.


Versatile in Design

Creating boardroom furniture from wood veneer means each piece will have a unique pattern according to the tree is was cut from, giving the furniture a bespoke edge. Several types of hardwood can be used to create wood veneer including oak, maple, cherry and ash which come in an array of colours and are of extremely high quality, so you can trust your furniture will withstand the test of time. If you purchase boardroom furniture from Knotty Ash Woodworking, you can rest assured that all wood is sustainably sourced from managed forests.
