Rift cuts… Slip matching… Vine marks…
These are all familiar terms to seasoned hardwood plywood pros. They also are just a few of the terms defined and illustrated in the updated 2015 Hardwood Plywood Grading Guide, by Columbia Forest Products.
The 28-page “guide to understanding popular hardwood plywood face veneer grades,” is a great portable reference tool for novice and expert alike. The highly pictorial guide covers everything from veneer cuts and matching through descriptions of natural veneer face characteristics, a glossary of terms and the ANSI/HPVA hardwood plywood and veneer standard. It also includes snapshot profiles of a baker’s dozen veneer species from alder to white oak.
Even if you know or think you know everything you need to know about hardwood plywood and veneer, the 2015 edition – also available in French – is a must-have addition for your library.
Think I’m kidding? I challenge you to take this 10-question pop quiz to test your hardwood plywood and veneer acumen. If you don’t score 10 out of 10 then I suggest you take haste to either download or order a copy of the 2015 Hardwood Plywood Grading Guide.
