Expanded Selection of  Cross-grain Wood Veneer Now Available at Oakwood Veneer
 
Troy, MI - May 8, 2015 - Woodworkers often face a dilemma when purchasing wood veneer. They sometimes need the wood grain to run perpendicular to the typical direction, in order to reduce the number of seams. On industry standard veneer sheet sizes of 4'X8', the grain runs in the length-wise direction, which is why some veneer companies offer cross-grain 8'X4' sheets which have the grain running width-wise.
 
With this in mind, Oakwood Veneer has recently expanded its offering of in-stock 8'X4' cross-grain sheets. The list now includes over 50 total species, including exotics such as karelian birch burl, euro-steamed beech, birdseye maple, English figured sycamore, South American Rosewood, figured eucalyptus and more. All cross-grain sheets come pre-sanded, which saves woodworkers a significant amount of time and effort. 
 
Many domestics are now also available in even longer cross-grain 10'x4' and/or 12'X4' sizes, including ribbon mahogany, maple, oak, cherry, walnut, and more. All in-stock sheets ship the same or next day and have a one-sheet minimum order. Additionally, customers can special order most other domestic and exotic species which are not immediately in-stock on cross-grain with a two week lead time and four sheet minimum. 
 
Oakwood Veneer holds a very large selection of in-stock veneer species, sizes, backers, grain patterns, and now, a significantly larger selection of cross-grain (also known as counter front), horizontal veneer sheets.
