As you can guess from our name, we at Sauers & Company Veneers know a great deal about wood veneer of all kinds. Where wood veneer used to be limited to only the natural colors of the wood itself and the variations that could be achieved with stains, today there are a wide range of colors available through modern dyeing processes. In this article, we’ll go over some reasons why we encourage you to give dyed wood veneer a try.
- Variety- As we alluded to above, one good reason to choose dyed wood veneer for your project is that it offers greater variety in color selection. At Sauers & Company Veneers, we offer dyed veneers in both a full palette of naturalistic shades, as well as a variety of brighter, more vivid colors for projects with a more modern, offbeat feel.
- Consistency- On a related note, a dyed wood veneer also offers greater color consistency than an undyed one. Natural wood is subject to color variation due to changes in the environment as the tree it came from was growing. While this variation can be desirable for some projects, there are others where greater consistency is called for. In the dyeing process, any color inconsistencies are evened out to give you seamless color throughout.
- Cost- Lastly, you may also want to choose dyed wood veneer due to its lower cost relative to undyed options. Dyed veneer can mimic the look of higher-end woods such as ebony or purple heart without the higher-end cost that goes with it. At Sauer & Company Veneers, we want to help everyone enjoy the craft of woodworking, and we don’t want you to have to break the bank to do it. If you want to save money on your veneers, we are happy to recommend a number of great dyed options.
