A term used to describe a continuous sheet of veneer peeled from a log by turning it against a stationary knife.
A veneering process where veneer is peeled with a stationary knife from a rotating log in a single continuous sheet (in paper towel fashion).
Veneer peeled from a whole log set in a lathe and turned against a special knife.
Veneer produced by centering the entire log in a lathe and turning it against a broad cutting knife which is set into the log at a slight angle.
A veneer production method where an entire log is centered on a lathe and then continuously turned against a knife which is set into the log at a slight angle.
Method of slicing wood for veneer in which the log is cut so that it resembles paper coming off a roll.
The log is mounted centrally in the lathe and turned against a razor sharp blade, like unwinding a roll of paper. Since this cut follows the log's annual growth rings, a bold variegated grain marking is produced. Rotary cut veneer is exceptionally wide.
A log peeled in ultra-thin layers using a rotary saw (method generally used to make veneers). This cutting method requires soaking the wood in a solution to soften it before peeling, which can alter its natural color and open the wood grain, causing it to splinter.
Method of slicing veneer; log of wood cut so it resembles paper coming off a roll.
