|Architectural Panel Matching|
Architectural grade veneers are matched for continuity of grain and color for various size panels, doors and transoms.
|Blueprint Matching: Color and grain pattern match.|
Sequence Matching Architectural grade veneers are matched for color and all panels of the same size will have continuity of grain. Other size panels must be cut during installation which may interrupt grain continuity. Doors are made from veneer of similar color but not continuity of grain.
|Sequence Matching: Crosshatching denotes interruption of grain continuity.|
Premium grade veneers from several flitches may be used. If more than one flitch is used, grain and color may not be similar. Doors may not be similar grain or color.
|Flitch Matching: Crosshatching denotes interruption of grain continuity. Color change denotes change of color and color grain pattern.|
| Just in case you are not
familiar with the normal procedure to follow when selecting architectural
veneers, we offer the following. As the design progresses, various
species are selected for color and texture, with inquiries sent to
a veneer manufacturer with regard to the availability of specific
lengths, square footage, and price. After the species have been designated
for a specific area, the veneer manufacturer is responsible for submitting
actual flitch samples taken from flitches that he feels will best
meet the requirements for color and size. Each flitch has it's own
number, and those numbers selected should be written into the specifications
so that each woodwork bidder and panel manufacturer knows exactly
the wood that has been specified and the price and footage of each
Full length samples are readily available, and we would be delighted to know of your interest.
