Hardwood veneers for interior paneling and furniture
An introduction to natural hardwood veneers, exploring how the stages of production present many structural and design
choices to interior designers and interior architects; cuts and grades, matching patterns, surface texture and bespoke
colours, with a special focus on using naturally sourced materials to create a luxury finish. We also cover the essentials of sustainability, regulations, and health & safety, including procurement, installation, and aftercare.

Nature Refined: Engineered Hardwood Flooring and Interior Joinery Solutions
From the tree to the tabletop, everything that happens to timber affects its lifespan as an architectural material. This CPD explores how time-honoured craftsmanship and modern technology can combine to create a surface that is sustainable, durable, regenerable and complies with legal and safety requirements. The CPD considers this in the context of each stage of production of engineered hardwood flooring and interior joinery. Case studies will explore the effectiveness of these treatments in-situ. By the end of the presentation you should have a greater understanding of:
- How the species and growing environment of the tree lead to aesthetic and structural differences.
- The requirements for legal and sustainable timber.
- Surface treatments and techniques that increase timber’s character, tactility, durability.
- The health and safety standards for timber surfaces.
- How the long-term maintenance of timber surfaces, including colour, can be enhanced by the use of natural regenerable surface treatments.

This CPD can be delivered to you live and remotely.
