Veneer

Lynden Door flush veneer clad doors are available across the range of Series (SD/Residential, CD, LD and IC). Multiple veneers are available laid up on substrates that meet a variety of needs, preferences and specifications.

In general, veneer doors fall into three basic classifications, with some overlap between the classes:

  • Residential (see standard, stocked residential veneer selection, below)
  • Light Commercial - numerous species and a full range of cut, match and lay-up selections
  • Architectural - numerous species and a full range of cut, match and lay-up selections

Mahogany (Lauan)     Quarter Sliced Sapele     Roatary Natural Birch

Uniform Light Birch     Rotary White Maple     Plain Sliced Red Oak

L-R, top to bottom - Mahogany (Lauan), Quarter Sliced Sapele, Rotary Natural Birch, Uniform Light Birch, Rotary White Maple, Plain Sliced Red Oak.

Veneers look rich and lustrous with a Lynden Door factory applied transparent urethane finish. A great choice, as it adds durability and seals the door, all six sides. Clear coated doors lend a unique European flair to painted jambs and casings - an eclectic look that works in equally well traditional or modernist decor.
