Veneer on cabinets, table tops and information desks
At Cube Design we use veneer for bookcases, cabinets, table tops and fronts. If you choose to have your product fully or partially in veneer, we have made sure that the product is made to be used daily in many years. To make sure that the product always meets our high standards and demands, we lacquer all veneer products 7 times. This is done to make sure that you, as a customer, always get a veneer product in high quality and durability.
Veneer comes from the trunk of a tree, where it is cut into thin sheets. The thin sheet allows us to make a product where the wood is uniform. When we sew the thin veneer together we will make sure that veins – wherever possible – fit together. This will give you a great result, which we can vouch for. When the veneer is glued, we glue the veneer onto the plates. When the veneer has been glued onto the plates, these are lacquered 3 times and then the edges are milled – this goes for table tops only. After the edges are milled, the plate is lacquered 3 more times. Finally, the plate is coated with a top lacquer, which protects the wood and makes the product extra durable.
Because veneer is real wood, there may be differences in color and neuancer in the wood depends on how much or how little light the veneer gets.
Daily care Wipe with a damp cloth and wipe with a dry cloth. In the case of a particularly dirty area, wipe it with a clean cloth wrung in water with detergent – wipe the surface with a dry cloth. The lacquer seals the plates and protects the veneer against liquids and dirt. We have lacquered our products 7 times so they are durable, but remember that a lacquered surface is generally a little vulnerable.
Do not place hot objects on lacquered products, and pay attention to moisture impact, which could make chalk marks on the surface.
Never use abrasive cleaners on lacquered surfaces.
