Wood veneer fancy Plywood,is usually veneered with good-looking hardwood veneers , such as red oak, ash, white oak, birch, maple, teak, sapele, cherry, beech, walnut and so on. Fancy plywood is much more expensive than common commercial plywood . Generally speaking, the fancy face/back veneers (outer veneers) are about 2~6 times as expensive as common hardwood face/back veneers (such as red hardwood veneers, Okoume veneers, Red Canarium veneers, poplar veneers, pine veneers and so on) . In order to save costs, most of customers require only one side of plywood to be faced with fancy veneers and the other side of plywood to be faced with common hardwood veneers.
Usually, fancy veneers are natural wood . But artificial (man-made) fancy veneers (also called engineered wood veneers) are also available . Artificial fancy veneers look similar to natural wood veneers.
