Our passionate pursuit of quality veneer

Quality is Everything

It’s simple. We start with superior grade hardwood and softwood timber and end with the most visually enthralling veneer. This is why we travel the world in our ongoing pursuit. We are looking for the best, most unique, and veneer quality timber.

Consistency

From architects and yacht designers to musical instrument manufacturers, our customers rely on our consistency of top notch veneer. They count on us for the merits that have placed us at the forefront of veneer manufacturing, importing, and exporting.

Technology

We’ve developed and patented many manufacturing methods over the years. These innovations have improved cutting quality, as well as increased yields. Because of this, we’ve been able to reduce costs for our customers.

You can choose from over 150 species of indigenous and imported veneers with us. Crotches, burls and hard-to-find species are available in many cuts and figure types. Choose from flat, quarter, rift and rotary cuts that are graded to your specifications. Opt for custom thicknesses ranging from 0.4 – 3.0 mm. Attention to detail, consistent quality, vast selection, and exceptional customer service make us a cut above the rest. Don’t just take our word for it, though – give us a call.

Sampling

Each log in our inventory is sampled for quick and easy reference. Through our Wood Search Engine, we quickly identify veneer options for you. We search by specie, grade, length, footage and more. Next, we select and share samples with you. In addition to our sampling process, we have the ability to show an 8 x 12″ finished panel of the material. Because of our streamlined process, you can be sure you are ordering exactly what you need. Visit our Map of Origins Index to see where the wood for your next project was responsibly harvested.

Natural veneer with embossed figure 

Realtec is natural veneer that is embossed with “figure.” The process creates a flawless resemblance to natural figure. The figure remains consistent throughout large sequences. Most agree that figure is ‘the’ desirable characteristic in wood. Interestingly, we’re still not sure how it is created. It is known that figure appears when the density and growth orientation within the grain changes to create a 3D perception.

Most desired figure

The fiddleback figure remains the most valued figure of all. Logs that have fiddleback 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 fiddleback figure.

Exclusive 

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 are easily matched for large jobs or continuous production.
