Wood is a timeless look that never goes out of style and adds value to any aircraft. When renovating, consider adding flexible veneer accents to your decor. Veneer consists of a thin layer of hardwood bonded to a less-expensive surface below. Flexible wood veneers look just as gorgeous as hardwood, and because of their flexibility and light in weight, they are usable on walls, cabinets, furniture, and great to renovate private planes and yachts.
