Coloured Maple Veneer (Acer Saccharum).
Design and build your own deck, using our premium-grade 1.58 mm thickness coloured hard maple veneer.
This veneer is premium grade, rotary-cut, kiln-dried stock. This maple is grown in Canada, where the long cold winters allow the trees to mature slowly. The resulting tight growth rings produce a strong tree and of course, strong veneer. All our veneer comes from a certified SFI mill.
The colour is infused right through this veneer so that when you sand it, the colour does not disappear. Please know that as the grain density in the veneer accepts the dye differently, there can be dramatic variance in the colour when sanded.
Available in longboard or street deck sized veneer. Long grain sheets only.
The trim size for Longboard veneer is 12 x 48″ (30.5cm x 122cm ) and 1.58 mm (1/16") thick.
Street deck: 9.5 x 34″ (24 cm x 86.5 cm) and 1.58 mm (1/16") thick.
These sheets can be Face grade or Core grade depending on the stock.
Face grade is intended for the outside layers of your deck. It is cut in the long grain direction. This sheet is virtually knot free and shows hardly any imperfections. This is so that if you intend on leaving the veneer showing, you get the best possible result.
Core – Also long grain direction, this veneer is intended for the inside of the deck as there may be some solid knots, holes, splits and staining. Sometimes we find interesting looking core sheets, so pretty that they look great on the outside of a custom board!
Note: if you have a sheet with spots, knots, blemishes, splits, holes or markings. This is because no wood is absolutely perfect. For each sheet to be perfect much of the amazing maple would be wasted, this therefore not being at all ecological. However these markings and knots by no means change the quality, strength or suppleness of the veneer, nor the finalised board or project.
This maple veneer is available in natural sheets.
