Oak veneers are thin sliced cuts of real oak, affixed to a lower density core less prone to warping and cracking than solid wood. The veneered table tops in our collection have 1,5 mm thick veneer, compared to 0,6 mm which is standard in furniture production. We have also added a solid oak frame around the edge, and put a lot of care and effort into matching the veneers the exact right way to get the ygg&lyng look you know from the rest of our collection. These features all contribute to the premium quality of these table tops!
Even though the core of the veneered table tops are not solid wood, all the surfaces are and should be treated accordingly! Wood is a living material with pores that will absorb liquid and dirt if they are not regularly filled with some kind of surface treatment.
All the finishes on our premium oak veneer tops are oiled and easy to maintain. Pay regular attention to signs that your table top might be dry. If you are in doubt you can sprinkle a few drops of water on your table and see if it gathers in beads on top of the surface, or if it’s absorbed into the wood. In that case it’s time to re-apply oil. How often you need to oil depends on the use of the table.
