Daily NCIDQ study session

Most common types of veneer matching:

book matching:  most commonly used matching in the industry. every other piece is turned over so adjacent pieces are opened like pages of a book.

slip matching:  often used with quarter sliced or rift sliced veneers. adjoining leaves are placed in sequence without turning, resulting in all the same face being exposed.

random matching:  veneer leaves are placed next to each other in random order and orientation, creating a board by board effect in many species.

end matching:  often used to extend the apparent length of available veneers for high wall panels and long conference tables.
