How Recon Wood is Crafted?

First, logs are carefully chosen using plentiful hardwood species. The wood is sliced and processed before being bonded and stained to create a new “log” that can be sliced into veneer, which is then bonded to a secure substrate.

The process can be repeated as often as needed to create similar or nearly identical panels or repeating patterns. It is then finished much like conventional hardwood veneers to protect from water or chemical damage and impacts.
