The ideal environment to achieve equilibrium with your veneer is defined as 30-55% relative humidity at a temperature range between 55-85 degrees F. Prior to application, allow your veneer a minimum of 48-72 hours lying flat out of the box within the range of conditions stated. Wood veneer is softer and more susceptible to scratches and dings when compared to laminate, so we recommend using desk pads and coasters to protect your surfaces.

So you can either choose to call it rustic and live with it or replace that portion if the veneer. This is already the second LVL line this Japanese company has ordered from Raute Wood.
However, when it is desired to use LVL in applications where appearance is important, common wood finishing techniques can be used to accent grain and to protect the wood surface. Stability is gained through the grains running perpendicular to each other, and the expansion and contraction of wood is reduced and relegated to the middle ply, stopping the floor from gapping or cupping. They are manufactured from a combination of wood chips, sawdust and adhesive, and they come in sheets or pre-cut and shaped for specific uses.
Our Cab-Pro 10 mil backed veneer is very flexible and easy to work with, making it the solution for wrapping contours and shapes. In addition to this, the veneer sheets are placed in specific sequence and location within the product to maximize the stronger veneer grades.

Blocks are rotary cut to 3,2 mm thick veneer, which are cut to sheets and the length depends on wanted LVL-lumber length. The level of preservative treatment specified for softwood laminated beams used in Service Class 3 applications should be H3. Similarly LOSP envelope treatment can be used satisfactorily. I’ve seen a few decent examples from Leicht and Poggenpohl, but it still lacks the warmth of real wood.
