SIZING AND PLANING
These operations are strictly hand-made, by expert artisans with an high level of knowledge of the materials. A job that puts the craftsman’s skill and the wood in close contact: there are still no technologies that can displace these skills.
This job requires great attention, all the wooden species are different in their qualities and defects, it is required to know them and to know how to work them. Each piece of wood is different in its processing and requires a sensibility that only the experience and the human hands could have, in order to enhance the beauty of the raw materials, using the right force and following the right direction, along the grain of the wood.
A “noble” alternative to the thin veneer, the thick veneer differs in the thickness of the wood that is glued on the panel. This ancient process has been evolved, thanks to technology, into modern veneer, which is characterized by wooden sheets with a thickness of 0.6 mm.
Giovanni Visentin, faithful to its origins and traditions, continues to use the thick veneer in its items, guaranteeing thicknesses of the materials higher than the ones ensured by today’s market standards.
