Steamed Beech Veneered MDF Details

For a high-quality polished finish, our crown cut veneered real wood steamed beech MDF elegantly adds a steamed beech finish to our 18mm standard MDF core. The result is similar in quality to alternative veneered plywood, enhanced by the uniform and colour of the real steamed beech veneer.

Steamed Beech is a pale wood, turning a reddish-brown when steamed. Originating from Europe, the wood has a straight grain with a fine texture offering good strength and stiffness. As such steamed beech is a durable and versatile option for those intending on making use of this excellent wood. 

Our popular steamed beech veneered MDF is made up of an excellent quality real steamed beech wood veneer which is bonded to our standard MDF. The core is an 18mm MDF core, with a 0.5mm laminate veneer applied to both faces. By right angle slicing the real steamed beech, we produce a crown cut veneer which gives a recognisable great iconic grain for the veneer which can be customised in direction for your steamed beech veneered MDF board.

As an adaptable material, our steamed beech veneer MDF boards are versatile for office furniture, kitchen cabinets, shelving, panel mouldings, dining sets, fire surrounds as well as being perfect for being stained and painted.

Due to its smooth and stable faces, MDF is also used for decorative wood or laminate veneers and it can easily be drilled and cut to specific sizes. With our CNC machine, we are fully equipped to customise your steamed beech veneered MDF to be cut to size, or with any measurements or requirements, including preparing for fixings with screws or nails.

The lightweight MDF sheets are also easy to mark up for cutting, or sanding down, and can be cut to various shapes and forms with ease using an electric saw, router or handsaw. If you wish to further cut your MDF European steamed beech veneer sheets, see our guide, though note that correct protection such as dust masks and goggles should be worn when handling MDF.

MDF is manufactured from wood fibres, mixed with resin and waxes which are then hot pressed to the required thickness. These wood fibres are sourced from environmentally friendly forest thinnings, recycled wood or pallets, and sawdust. All our suppliers provide FSC and PEFC certification.

Our pure steamed beech veneer MDF faces are a cleaner and decorative option for aesthetics that can be stained to darken it and used as if it was a piece of solid steamed beech, all the while, the sturdy and stable MDF core keeps it flat and strong.

Steamed Beech Veneered MDF Key Features

Versatile

Strengthened with our 18mm MDF core, our steamed beech veneered sheets are sturdy and stable for all uses from furniture to panellings.

Inexpensive

As a far cheaper alternative to solid wood, our veneered MDF boards are an accessible option for those wanting to give the strength and looks of solid pure wood.

Maintainable

Keeping your veneered MDF boards clean and hygienic can be achieved with ease, as all that is required is a microfibre cloth and a standard wood polish. 

Lightweight

As a result of the 18mm MDF core being compressed wooden fibres, our veneered boards weigh significantly less than a solid steamed beech sheet of comparable size. This makes it an attractive option for furnishings or as part of a wider installation as it is easier to handle, transport, handle and install.

Malleable

Our veneered MDF steamed beech sheets are easy to fabricate and can be cut, drilled and shaped to any requirements, so are a flexible, and attractive material to work with. The edges of the sheet can also be customised with an additional 0.5mm veneer to provide that professional outward-facing edge

Installation

We have numerous installation guides for your next project involving MDF veneered panels including shelving and wall panelling. While we do recommend that you hire a professional to aid any installations, check them out for advice or ideas on how to complete your project yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is veneered MDF?

Veneered MDF is created by bonding a thin veneer of solid wood to standard grade MDF. The result is a similar quality alternative to veneered Plywood, enhanced by the uniform colour and straight grain of the wood with the strength of the MDF core.

Is veneer furniture good quality?

A veneered product is made out of thin, decorative slices of high-quality oak, affixed to a lower density core that will resist warping and moisture and therefore offer a good value alternative to solid wood. This strength and inexpensive option are produced to a high quality and an inexpensive option in comparison.

Can you paint veneered MDF?

If the veneer surface is in good condition, you can simply sand it a little, prime and paint. You can treat this like any other piece of furniture. However, if the veneer is chipped and damaged carry out the process as mentioned in our guide before sanding.

Is solid wood better than veneer?

Depending on the craftsmanship of the wood (the types and quality of finish, cut, hardware and other factors that went into the construction), solid wood furniture can last for generations. However veneered wood is incredibly durable and an inexpensive alternative.

Is veneer real wood?

Yes! All of the veneers that we supply are made from real solid wood. It is worth checking that your veneer is real wood, as often some manufacturers may offer vinyl or laminate alternatives.

What is veneer used for?

In woodworking, a veneer is a cut of wood that is 0.8mm thick, that is applied to both faces of a strong MDF core. This is to seal and stabilize the core, which is crucial for building furniture for instance. 

Can you take the veneer off furniture?

While it is possible to remove a veneer, it can be extremely difficult to do, as removing the veneer would likely damage the MDF core underneath. For this reason, we highly recommend checking that you require veneered MDF prior to ordering.

Can you refinish the veneer?

It is definitely possible to refinish a veneer. To do so you treat it almost the same as a real piece of solid wood, though taking extra measures to avoid damaging the veneer or its MDF core.

How do you protect wood veneer?

While the wood veneer can be varnished and stained to protect it, we also recommend considering how the veneer will be used. If used on a table for instance, that you purchase an acrylic table top protector for extra protection.
