Why Earthsmart Veneer?

This is quite simply “The Greenest Wood Veneer on the Planet” --- a top-of-the-line, environmentally friendly, and stunningly rich looking and feeling wood veneer. 

We start out with all-FSC certified, premium grade wood veneer from South America, Europe, and the United States. Without doing a thing to it, it already has its unique color and grain pattern imparted by nature. We manufacture the FSC veneer into 4’X8’ and 4’X10’ sheets of Bubble Free Veneer (BFV) in our Troy, MI facility.

At this point, we are just getting started. We take the FSC certified wood veneer and it receives the highest quality and most environmentally friendly finish available today. This 7-step, double sanded, double coated, and triple cured pre-finished veneer is more beautiful to the eyes and stunning to the touch than any you have ever seen or felt. The finish is 100% non-toxic, has zero formaldehyde, and zero offgassing, meaning absolutely nothing is released into the environment.

One more point is that when our pre-finished veneer is on the wall or on a piece of furniture, it doesn't look like plastic laminate or Formica like some other pre-finished veneers. It looks and feels like an exquisite piece of real, natural, and luxurious wood.
