How to Specify

Wood veneer has an inherent originality. When choosing veneer, it’s important to provide specification details in order to achieve your desired look. Details like cut, appearance (figure and match), grade, and finish need to be considered. Our M. Bohlke Corp. specifying guide leaves nothing to chance.

Contact us with any questions you may have – our knowledgeable team can help along the way.

The following information should be included during specification, along with pertinent project documents:

Determining your application (panels, doors, furniture, etc.)

– Length of veneer needed
– Quantity in total square footage (figuring an average 3 to 1 waste factor)

Maximum raw veneer length available is 17 feet
Common veneer lengths: 10 – 12 feet
Most veneer panel presses are maximum 10 feet
Common particle board length: 8 – 10 feet
Most plywood is 8 feet
