"Crown Cut" which can be abbreviated to read “CC” relates to the slicing method used when peeling the oak logs. If you’re not familiar with what this means, we have produced several PDF documents at the bottom of this page (Download Files) which gives you a written / visual example for you to get a better understanding.

We get asked many times on how thick the actual oak veneer is. Before touch sanding takes place at the end of the veneering process. The veneer is sliced to a nominal 0.6mm thickness. To some of our customers this sounds incredibly thin, but this has been the standard throughout the industry for many decades. Please remember, just like wallpaper, which is even thinner. a veneer is there for a decorative reason. You can help to protect the veneer, by using a suitable lacquer etc. Which on most application, for example “veneer wall linings”, “pub tables” and “bespoke furniture “with relatively light contact works without any major problems. However, we need to highlight in the last few months we have been getting calls asking to use veneered boards to be used as actual flooring panels. In this circumstance, we would (even with a suitable hard flooring lacquer,) not recommend using any veneered panel with a 0.6mm veneer. It maybe ok for a few months, but with hard traffic constantly moving across the panels. Eventually wear and tear will get through the lacquer and quickly go through the actual veneer. Which would look awful.

Interesting facts about oak trees:

Oak trees normally live between 80 - 200 years. There are exceptions showing them to live 1000 years upwards. One example, considered to be the oldest oak tree in the world, the Pechanga Great Oak Tree is estimated to be 2000 years old.

Normally an oak tree will not start to produce acorns (seeds) until they are between 30 - 50 years old.

Being from the genus Quercus family, some common names for European / American oaks are Quercus robur - English Oak (the most common species in the UK). Quercus sessiliflora, Quercus pedunculata being some of the other common Latin names used for European oak trees.
