Gabon face veneer refers to a type of natural face veneer that is made from the wood of the Gabon tree, which is native to the African continent. Gabon face veneer is highly valued for its beautiful appearance, durability, and stability.
Gabon wood is known for its dark brown to black color and distinctive grain pattern, which includes fine, straight lines and occasional swirls and knots. The wood is extremely hard and dense, making it resistant to wear and tear, as well as damage from moisture and insects.
To make Gabon face veneer, thin slices of Gabon wood are cut using a veneer slicer and then dried and sanded to create a smooth surface. The resulting veneer sheets are then typically used to cover the surfaces of furniture, cabinets, and other decorative items.
Gabon face veneer is often used in high-end furniture and architectural applications due to its beauty and durability. It is also popular in the musical instrument industry, where it is used to make high-quality guitar and piano parts due to its superior resonance and tonal properties. Gabon face veneer is considered a luxury material and is often more expensive than other types of natural face veneer.
