The arrangement of veneer comprising the panel’s face determines the visual effect that results. Different matching techniques are used for specific panel applications.

Slip Matching: Adjacent veneer sheets are joined side-by-side, same sides up, for a uniform grain pattern.

Whole Piece: A single piece of veneer is used with continuous grain characteristics running across the sheet.

Pleasing Match: Veneers are matched by color similarity. Not necessarily grain characteristics.

Random or Mismatch: Veneers intentionally do not match at the joints for a casual effect.

Book Matching: Turns every other piece of adjacent veneer over, resulting in
identical but opposite patterns.

Special Matching Effects: Other arrangements of veneers, such as this checkerboard pattern, can be used to produce striking visual impact.
