The most responsible use of natural resources due to the declining availability of natural wood are Veneer Doors. The wood grains intervened by slicing very thin layers of grain into sheets of natural material. They can be applied to flat surfaces, such as panels, plywood, or can be used as a door skin.


Veneer is an excellent way to build a standard-sized door, but when you are reaching for door heights which pass the 8 foot mark or widths that are greater than three-and-a-half feet wide, you start running into the risk of door failure.

Large veneer doors are entirely different. These oversized doors do not come off of a conveyor belt. They are usually a one-off build by a highly skilled artisan or team of craftsmen who are building these big veneered doors according to engineered architectural specifications.

The process of applying veneer isn’t simple. Just one wrong move can ruin your product, which means a large cost to fix the problems. That one mistake can even result in a whole new door. Even if you run into a problem with a standard sized door, it’s not too much of a problem, because factories are tossing these out by the thousands every day. So, when your door fails, you can just head to a hardware store and buy an inexpensive replacement door. This is often less expensive than hiring a millwork to service or repair your veneer door.

There are many things to take into consideration for a large door with a natural wood veneer on it. The first consideration is the veneer itself.

How thick is it?

What will the substrate be made of?

How will it be applied to the substrate?

If laminated, what is the method used, what adhesive will be applied, and how long will the lamination last, before it starts to delaminate?

Wood veneered doors are more commonly used indoors, as the thin veneer is not well-suited for exposure to the elements, such as in a large front door application. In this case, you would be better off using a thicker surface material such 1/8 to a 1/4 wood stave skin for exterior doors.

The most important aspect when considering a veneer door is how the door will be made from the inside out,  especially in large veneer doors over the standard 3 ft. by 7 ft. door. You may ask yourself, why? Because they will warp. Almost any material used in building an oversized veneer door will move according to variations in the environment where the door resides.

We offer our ultra high quality veneering service for customers who need that extra level of quality.

Premium Option

We apply an MDF layer to our legendary ply substrate.  This offers you the most stable option for applying to your veneer door. You can save money on your end by getting the job done correctly the first time. If you do not apply your veneer to the proper surface, it could result in having to redo your veneer job.  In the worst case scenario, applying your veneer improperly can ruin the doors.  That’s why, with our premium option, we ensure you a proper surface for your application.

Standard Option

Our standard substrate, made from high quality plywood, offers you a great surface to apply your skins, but you must make sure to do your veneer job properly, or it could result in a ruined veneer job.  Veneering requires experts who have a very high level of skill.
