    Matching Leaves

  • Creates different looks
  • Changes grain appearance

Book Match

Achieved when one piece of veneer is turned over to join the adjacent piece, much like turning the pages of a book (hence the name). This is the most common match resulting in a balanced grain pattern.

Slip Match

A method of matching veneers for the face of plywood where consecutive sheets of veneer are slipped out, side by side and joined together with a repetition of the same grain appearance.

Random Match

Indicates veneers, either sliced or rotary, are put together for the face of a piece of plywood at random without matching the grain.
