Unclipped Veneer
Although the majority of our production is clipped and bundled veneer, we also offer unclipped veneer – bundled or in flitch-stock form.

Imported veneer

We also slice imported wood species from all around the world. Our imported inventory spans over three warehouses, consisting of over 80 million square feet. Our common species include Eucalyptus, European Beech and Prima Vera. We also have rare species including Ziricote, Amboyna Burl and Bubinga Pommelle.

Sampling

Each log is sampled and photographed for quick and easy reference. Through our ‘Wood Search Engine,’ we quickly identify veneer options for projects. Our searches are based on species, grade, length, footage and more. We then share these free samples with our customers. In addition, we also have the ability to showcase an 8×12″ finished panel of the material for even better reference. As a result of this streamlined process, you can be sure you are ordering exactly what your project calls for.

Natural veneer with embossed figure 

Realtec is natural veneer that is embossed with “figure.” The process produces a flawless resemblance to natural figure, remaining consistent throughout large sequences.

Most people would agree that figure is the most desirable characteristic in wood. Interestingly, we are still not sure how figure is created. It is known, however, that figure appears when the density and growth orientation within the grain changes to create a 3D perception.

Most desired figure

The “fiddle-back figure” remains the most valued figure of all. Logs that have this figure are extremely rare. With Realtec, you can have this figure in continuous supply and at consistent pricing. Due to a lack of availability in fiddle-back veneers, Hokusan Ltd. of Japan developed a patented process to emboss natural plain veneers with fiddle-back figure.

Exclusive availability

We are the only distributor of Realtec in the United States and Canada. With an inventory of over one million square feet, we have various grades and lengths available for purchase. Thanks to the consistent figure and color, log flitches can be easily matched for large jobs or continuous production.
