Wood-Chip supplies and produces many domestic, exotic, and rare veneers.
We hand select on the best wood veneers to insure the best finished product. We feature paper, fenolic, and wood backed veneers in standard or custom thicknesses. Wood-Chip’s staff is qualified to identify and match any species of wood. We also feature Wilson art contact cement and an assortment of other products for installation.
As always, if you don’t feel comfortable laying up your own veneer ask us! Wood-Chip will gladly mount your veneers to the plywood of your choice or even send someone to your job site to perform the work. Our veneers are available individually, or book matched for that continuous panel look.

Wood-Chips carpenters are often asked what is the best way to lay veneer. While we understand full panels are easily vacuum bagged, this may not be the preffered method as many people don’t have access to this technology. In our literal thousands of successful lay ups we have found a few tips to pass on to you, the consumer.
- First, start with a smoothed quality plywood panel. Remember, and gouges or defects will show through in the finished product.
- Always remember to factor your veneers or formicas slightly larger than the panel. This allows for a “slight” margin of error in the process. Excess material is always routered off and filed smooth for a perfect product.
- Wipe both the plywood panel and the “backer” of the veneer with a quality denatured alcohol. We here at woodchip trust Whitaker solvents and chemicals. Always allow surfaces to dry completely!
- Next, coat both the plywood and veneer with Wilsonart 600 contact adhesive. We love this stuff as it is sprayable or brushable straight out of the can.
- Please adhere strictly to the timelines established by the glue manufacturer for proper adhesion.
- Another trick we use here is to insert clean dry battons between the plywood and veneer. The contact adhesive won’t bond to the dry furring, so this allows us one last chance to line the two materials up.
- After ensuring the two pieces line up properly, remove each stick one at a time, gently smoothing out any air pockets along the way.
- Wait the reccomended 30m minutes to router and file the edges clean.
- Enjoy the fruits of your labor. A perfectly veneered piece of furniture is a thing of beauty.
