As an architectural specifier, details can make or break your projects — and when it comes to architectural doors, the terminology can be confusing to even seasoned specifiers. Many of the most difficult questions are around selecting the veneer. That’s why the National Architectural Door Council of the Window & Door Manufacturers Association developed this primer on veneer matching methods, cutting options and color selection.
This course describes the color and grain variation found within wood species veneer and explains how cutting can change the appearance of a wood veneer. It describes how individual veneer pieces are matched within a door face, and how door faces are laid up to achieve symmetrical or non-symmetrical appearance. The webinar also explains how veneer cut, match and grade specification affect the use of Certified wood as well as overall wood yield.
At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to identify best practices that would be applicable to their work environment. Participants will receive one (1) continuing education credit from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and/or one (1) continuing education credit from the Door and Hardware Institute (DHI).
