Oak veneered plywood
Plywood with carved, decorative veneer on one side. The opposite side appears rather “coarse”, so two mirror-image pieces can be glued together after cutting, if you would like a homogenous surface on both sides.
Technical description: oak veenered plywood
Weight: 0,6 g/cm3
Tolerance, thickness: +/- 10%
Useful to know
Plywood is often used for architectural models, jewellery, model aircrafts/ships and furniture.
Vector and raster engraving
Oak veneered plywood can be both vector and raster engraved. The material gains a darker tone in the engraved areas. The deeper the engraving, the darker the colour.
Thick line and raster engraving may cause some discoloration around the engraved area, particularly with raster engraving. However, this can easily be removed by light sanding.
The veneer is about 0.5mm in thickness. Be aware that heavy vector and raster engraving can result in getting right down to the plywood layer. Therefore, you should choose light or medium engraving if you only want the surface to be engraved.
Avoiding burn marks
A protective film on top and /or bottom can be added when ordering to avoid the worst soot and burn marks from the laser. However, applying a film is not possible when raster engraving.
Direction of the wood grain
If you have any specific preferences for the grain direction on the wood and your design, please let us know by making an arrow in your file that indicates to us which way we should turn the sheet. You can also inform us in the comments box when placing your order about any such preferences you may have.
Only possible with A format.
Top – A slight darkening of the wood will appear along the score lines. This can be removed by applying film before cutting. This option can be added when you place your order. Remember to remove the film when you receive your cutting.
Edges– The edges look brownish and can rub off. This can be removed by wiping with a cloth or lightly sanding. The thicker the material, the darker the edges.
Bottom – The bottom is not always veneered and can therefore have a “raw” appearance. There will be some discoloration on the bottom after the cutting process. Usually it is a honeycomb pattern, depending on the material on which it has been cut. You can opt to add a protective film to your order, which will remove most of this. Remember to remove the film when you receive your cutting.
Oak veneered plywood can be painted, but it is most often left untreated, oiled or varnished to protect the surface
