Key Features of Maple Veneer
Our maple veneer MDF offers versatility at an affordable price point. The durable MDF core provides lightweight strength and stability for diverse applications from furniture to architectural panels.
The budget-friendly veneered MDF gives you the beauty and workability of solid maple without the higher cost. It's an accessible option to achieve the look of real wood grain.
Simply wipe clean with a microfiber cloth and standard wood polish to keep the veneer looking its best.
As a result of the 18mm MDF core being compressed wooden fibres, our veneered boards weigh significantly less than a solid maple sheet of comparable size. This makes it an attractive option for furnishings or as part of a wider installation as it is easier to handle, transport, handle and install.
With simple tools, our maple-veneered MDF can be fabricated into virtually any shape. Cut, drill, route and sand with ease. Edgebanding lets you conceal the MDF core for a seamless solid wood appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is maple-veneered MDF?
Maple-veneered MDF pairs thin real maple wood veneers with rigid medium-density fiberboard cores. The veneers provide consistent maple grain patterns while the MDF resists warping.
What are the pros of maple veneered furnishings?
Maple veneered furniture gives an economical alternative to solid maple that still offers durability and beautiful wood aesthetics. The veneers showcase maple grains at a fraction of solid wood's cost.
How should you prep maple veneer prior to painting?
Carefully inspect for defects, make repairs, lightly sand, and properly prime maple veneered MDF before painting. This gives the paint an optimal surface for adhesion.
How does maple-veneered furniture compare to solid maple?
While solid maple can last for decades, maple-veneered furniture provides excellent durability at a more budget-friendly price point.
Are the maple veneers real wood?
Absolutely. Our maple veneers are slices of genuine maple wood adhered to the core, providing an authentic maple look and feel.
Can the maple veneer be removed from finished products?
Removing the veneer often damages the core, so we don't advise trying to take veneers off completed pieces. Choose veneered MDF if you want a ready-made look.
How should you care for and protect maple veneer?
Use coasters, placemats, and table pads to avoid scratches and moisture damage. Regularly clean with soft cloths and repair finish scratches. Apply protective topcoats.
