Crown cut veneers,  Quarter cut veneers, Book matched veneers and open grain explained:

The main two methods in creating crown cut veneers is something that has been used since the beginning of oak door and furniture manufacturing, the splitting of decorative oak veneers is an art and one for the experienced machine man to carry out, the difference is the way the flitch (raw timber baton) is placed in the cutter/saw.

Crown cut is when the oak veneer is cut parallel to the growth rings.

Quarter cut oak veneer is when the timber is cut at right angles to the growth rings, this results in a straight line pattern. 

Book matching veneers is when you take the cut veneers and lay the cut veneers from the same source wood side by side to create a match in say a pair of doors.

Open grain oak veneers are the result of a selection process, "open grain" produces veneers with more pattern and a "feel" of the grain rather than a totally smooth feel, the open or closed grain is due to the pores within the chosen veneer, this is once again possible only by using trained personnel to select and grade the veneers that best suit the Deanta oak doors which we offer.
