How were perfect technics and technology of imitation of wood under rare and valuable breeds of the tree, whatever good were the dyes, products of modern chemistry, they cannot surpass in furnish natural drawing and colour raskrasku natural wood of the Karelian birch, a nut, mahogany, a black rosewood and other breeds. Picturesque drawing of outgrowths on a tree, kapov at all does not give in to imitation.
Joiner's processing of plywood differs from processing of an integral tree. It do not saw, and cut a chisel, do not plane, and scrape or grind a skin, for it there is only one kind of connection - on glue. In the course of furnish such operations, as zadelka knots, obessmolivanie, shpaklevanie, peculiar to joiner's preparation of products for opaque furnish are not applied. For it one kind of a finishing covering - transparent is suitable only. .
However and plywood sometimes paint to strengthen only natural colouring, to reveal drawing more contrastly. The beech and a maple on which wood quite often there is no expressive large drawing, paint in more dark of tone. Colouring is more often applied to incrustation where the general drawing is under construction on contrasts, sharp transitions from light to the dark. Gains colouring and when it is necessary to make type-setting drawing, and at hand one only birch plywood.
Having bought in shop a pack of sheets of plywood, do not hurry up to display it with curiosity, to look, on what sheet what drawing. The matter is that at factories at range cutting on plates (any way) received plywood sheets put in packs in the same order in which they have been located in a log. If on the first sheet the pattern of a large knot on the second it will be the little less on the size and not precisely such on an arrangement of fibres is visible, and and and the fifth or sixth this drawing can not be at all, it will replace new, with other interlacing of fibres. .
It is possible to combine in one plane two sheets, let us assume, the first and the second or the seventh and the eighth. Each pair forms repeating drawing, the direction of fibres, dark and light strips coincides along the edges. But to combine these two steams in one drawing it will not be possible: to pair from the first and second sheet and the fourth, and the pair from the third will approach to pair from the seventh both eighth - ninth and the tenth or the fifth and the sixth only. It should be considered, if for use from the whole pack one sheet is taken out only, most likely, it is necessary to take one of extreme.
