Figure is the wavy texture across the surface of wooden veneer sheets that gives the impression of an uneven surface even though it is smooth and flat. The effect is visible because of the light that is reflected on the uneven arrangements of veneer fibers. Figures are created due to the blending and wrinkling of the growth rings due to uneven bark pressure, wind, and indentation on trees by vines. They are unique to each tree and vary in natural luster and density. Their unique character enhances the texture of the wood and makes furniture pieces unique and beautiful. Continuing on the topic, in this blog post, we discuss six types of veneer figures you can choose from for your veneer designs for doors. Read on!

Stripe grain is one of the most popular wooden veneer figures, especially for doors and windows. It is a figure of contrasting stripes that are veining in the direction of the grain. Stripe grain figures can be obtained through quarter cutting to give a unique and elegant look to furniture items.
