With veneer you can access top quality and specially figured logs, which would be rarely offered as sawn boards because of their extreme cost. These veneers can be used to create special effects such as sequenced runs, book match and quarter match. Rare figures such as burr, curl, ripple, mottle, beeswing, pommelle, birds eye, ribbon, quilt ripple kent lace are easily accessible.

Opening hours: Monday to Friday 09. Erosion has removed the highest parts of the dome so that we see the oldest sandstones of the High Weald exposed in its centre whilst younger chalks of the North and South Downs form its outer rim. The Kentish rocks begin with fresh water sandstones and clays of the Wealden Series. These were deposited in a subsiding basin to the south of an old landmass known as the London Platform, now buried under North Kent and London. We can envisage shallow gravelly rivers flowing from these uplands, carrying sediment into an extensive area of low lying marshes with ponds, streams and sand banks.
Eventually these uplands were lowered by erosion, only fine sediment was generated and the basin became a mud plain. London Platform was repeatedly uplifted and eroded. As the uplift cycles waned an extensive mud plain developed that is preserved as the Weald Clay. Because sandstones predominate in the first and second cycle their resistance to weathering creates the rolling, wooded High Weald.
