This is the material over which a thin decorative face and back veneer is applied.
* 1 Step, or Conventional Construction is the least expensive way to manufacture a veneer core panel because all laminations including the face and back veneers are assembled and pressed at one time.
(2004), reported that 70 percent of the gluebond specimens tended to fail at either the loose or loose/back (i.e., combination of loose side veneer and back veneer) locations, independent of roughness category.
Thirty-five veneer sheets, 12-inches by 12-inches, were selected per roughness category and 210 smooth sheets were selected for face and back veneers; all were conditioned to approximately 5 percent MC.
All of this 5-ply panel is aspen poplar except the face and back veneer
. The trunk or straightest part of the aspen tree is peeled for crossbands.
The next step is in determining the: cut, match, panel face match, figure, square footage, panel length required, leaf width, core material and thickness, AWI grade of panel, the back veneer
species, and whether the panel is to be sanded or finished by MVP.
are graded by number, with #1 being the highest.
The KAM-7049 applied moulding door design from Keystone Wood Specialties has a flat panel constructed from a Canadian white aspen core, with two outer crossbands of high-quality MDF, and completed with domestic face and back veneers
. Edges are trimmed with a matching applied moulding, It comes in maple, cherry and red oak, finished or unfinished.
This difference can probably be related to the presence of solid face and back veneers
in the three-ply PB-core panel.
