In woodworking, veneer refers to thin slices of wood, usually thinner than 3 mm (1/8 inch) that typically are glued onto core panels (typically, wood, particle board or medium-density fiberboard) to produce flat panels such as doors, tops and panels for cabinets, parquet floors and parts of furniture. They are also used in marquetry. The veneers will give a shiny and royal look to the furniture. They are available in several colors and designs. Veneer not just provides a great finish to a piece of furniture but also make it more durable and long-lasting. The veneers made from wood are non-toxic in nature and do not cause any harm to the environment as the glue used to manufacture veneers is formaldehyde free.
