Factory visit: Sonear Industries Ltd
In our constant endeavor to help get the best selection of veneers to the market place we keep visiting the factory premises of our suppliers. This time it was to the Sonear Industries Ltd.‘s premises in Sampla, Haryana.
The main selection focus was teak veneers. The factory always has a large and veritable collection of the veneer and at this time and we were able to get our hands on choicest of selection!
Along with the regular book match teak selection we were shown horizontal and vertical mismatches in both quarter & crown cut.
What is a book-match veneer?
Bookmatching is the practice of matching two (or more) wood or stone surfaces, so that two adjoining surfaces mirror each other, giving the impression of an opened book.
What is mismatched veneer?
Mismatching is where random surface finish veneers are pasted together giving a planked look.
A new variant of veneer composition where the raw feel of the wood had been reproduced was also showcased. In this case the edges of the veneer has not been trimmed and at places where there are knots it has been left as is, even if the knot has fallen off the cavity left has been not patched up. The base ply here was evenly coated in black paint (colour) to offset the veneer more brilliantly.
It was visually stimulating!
