Taking Veneer One Step Further

With the extensive inventory that M. Bohlke Veneer Corp carries in raw veneer, it only seems logical to have the ability to take the product to the next step by splicing it into sheet faces. MBVC’s splicing facility is a perfect complement to our vast veneer inventory.

In 1998 M. Bohlke Veneer Corp. purchased and acquired a secondary warehouse and production facility conveniently located across the street from MBVC’s main manufacturing facility. This new addition created what is now known as M. Bohlke Face Corp. Under the control and guidance of Marc Bohlke, the splicing facility continuously grew over the following years. Today, the splicing facility warehouses all MBVC’s face production, our reconstituted/engineered veneer line known as “Vtec” and our extensive lumber inventory.

Equipped with two Kuper ACR Superquik Cross Feed Splicers, one Fischer-Ruckle Crossmaster Splicer, one Kuper FLI Longitudinal Splicer, two double knife guillotines and one Kuper KLM in-line glue machine, our splicing facility has the ability to produce faces in high volumes, but also the precision to complete smaller and more specific orders as well. We can manufacture faces of a variety of species to many different sizes. We will also grade and repair the faces to your standards and specifications (HPVA and WHPP guidelines also).

We consider MB Face to be a very flexible and versatile operation. Not only can we produce standard panel and door size sheets, but we also excel in our cut-to-size business with a variety of sizes and shapes for applications ranging from car dash pieces to skateboard decks and top sheets. We also offer custom splicing services where you can purchase raw veneer from our inventory and we can splice the material for you at a square-footage output charge. You can splice as much as several pallets, or as little as one log. Please find our current inventory offering below for your reference.

Vtec is an innovative and cost-effective approach to traditional wood veneer. When you need a consistent color and pattern throughout your entire project, Vtec is your answer.

Vtec engineered veneer is real wood, engineered through a patented process that allows us to reproduce nature’s rich and beautiful grain patterns with uniformity and consistency on a large scale with very high yields. The result is vast inventories of veneer available with consistent color, grain structure and pattern that’s not available directly from nature.

With our Vtec veneer, you can create matching surfaces (such as doors, desks, paneling and more) in large quantities. This means you can return to us years from now and purchase Vtec veneer that matches your original purchase.

Our Vtec engineering process offers another eco-friendly advantage. With Vtec, we can replicate exotic patterns (such as ebony or teak) from fast-growth trees. Therefore, you get the exquisite look of an exotic veneer at a price within your budget. M. Bohlke Veneer Corp. offers Vtec in several species, cuts and sizes: Sizes include. Vtec is manufactured and certified in accordance with ISO 14001 and is available as FSC certified in all species.

Bamboo and Vtec


Bamboo is a manufactured face that is produced from the bamboo plant itself. This patented process consists of shaving each stick of bamboo into thin slices and then rejoining them back together to create a warm, linear grain pattern similar to natural wood, but it obtains the same consistency as engineered veneer. Although bamboo is a grass instead of wood, it still allows for the same consistency and color that wood allows. The distinct look of bamboo has aroused increased popularity of this appealing plant. You’ll find furniture, kitchens, store fixtures, flooring, walls and ceiling panels beautifully adorned with bamboo’s striking qualities.

M. Bohlke Veneer Corp. brings you quality bamboo veneer in three colors: caramel (darker), khaki (medium) and natural (lighter). All three are available in either of two cuts. Our ‘flat cut’ features a wide grain 3/4” pattern. Our ‘quarter cut’ offers a narrower grain of 1/4”. Each is sure to make your project visually stunning in its own way. Our bamboo veneer is available in 4’ x 8’ and 4’ x 10’ sheets. All of our bamboo products are produced without urea formaldehyde (NAUF) and are CARB compliant. All bamboo is also available as FSC certified.

Bamboo and Vtec

When you are manufacturing veneer faces for your project, it is not always true that your finished sheets are simple panel and doors sizes – some of your sizes may not even be symmetrical. At M. Bohlke Veneer, we excel in the cut-to-size face business.

With many current programs existing where we are cutting and splicing a variety of different shapes and sizes from car dash parts to skate board decks, we have the flexibility to produce many odd sizes or requests that you may have. Contact our offices to see how we can help you with your obscure shapes and designs.
