Interiors of modern homes are adorned with solid wood furniture and the highlight of this type of furniture is that is that all exposed parts are made of the same species of all natural wood, and there is no inclusion of any other materials. Wood veneer is a thin slice of wood or real wood cut from log. A sawing machine is used to cut a thin slice of veneer from log. Both solid wood and veneer wood has been used in the making of furniture from a very long time and both have their respective merits and demerits. It is to be noted that all-wood furniture is not always solid wood. A veneer wood can achieve the same look as solid wood at a much lower rate than solid lumber.
