Veneer technology was developed around 3000 BC in Egypt but the heyday of veneers transpired during renaissance, baroque and rococo. Today, Cabinet makers produce complex veneer surfaces.
Application is where most of the difference is made.
We believe in seamlessness. From single narrow plies, we strive to create complex and expansive surfaces in which the split line is concealed, thereby resulting in a wood pattern that exhibits perfect continuity and harmony.
Veneer is made by cutting thin slices off a whole log to make a sheet of wood.
Cut & Press
There are several ways in which these sheets can be cut. The different kinds of cuts result in different patterns of grain.
The individual veneer sheets are joined together (spliced) according to the required final matched veneer.
Veneer can be used on a large array of surfaces. Its properties and new processes enable this fine material to be handled very flexibly, opening up numerous new design options.
The visual and technical quality of the veneer is continuously checked during the entire production, processing and veneering process.
In the hands of an expert, veneering technique can produce some of the most remarkable effects in woodworking. This goal is only obtained through our extensive knowledge of the raw material that we work with, enabling an intimate understanding of the interactions between the curves and edges of the artifacts, a process that brings out the best of what the material has to offer.
The idea behind the DTales project is to combine the expertise of our master craftsmen with the study and use of innovative technologies to create exquisitely tasteful pieces that overwhelm the onlooker with emotion.
Our expertise extends to decorative coverings in composite materials such as carbon fibre.
