Premium Wood Cuts

Looking to set your lockers apart? Selecting a premium veneer cut can provide a dramatic change in the grain of the wood.

Standardly, Hollman veneer lockers are made from "Plain Sliced" veneers, meaning that each sheet of wood is cut straight across each log, with the blade running parallel to the log center. The resulting grain pattern shows a cathedral design from the cut running across the tree's growth rings.

Premium Wood Cuts are designed to run more closely with the grain, resulting in straighter, tighter grain lines.
