Jewelry Boxes and Humidors

When crafting cigar humidors, jewelry boxes, chess sets and other game boxes, exotic hardwood veneer is often used to create exceptional styling. Because of their relatively small sizes, rare veneer can be used rather inexpensively to produce heirloom pieces of intricate detail and vibrant color. Exotic species and rare formations like burl and crotch wood create a look that is both classical and unique. In addition, contrasting inlays are perfect for chess and backgammon sets or other pieces showcasing geometric designs.

FormWood Industries provides custom hardwood veneer, veneer laminates and panels to fit almost any application within this industry. Recent advances in production technology allow FormWood to supply pre-fabricated panels, ready to be assembled and finished. The use of veneer in humidors offers many advantages over those made with solid wood. MDF does not expand like solid wood when exposed to humidity, and therefore is far less susceptible to warping and cracking. Also, FormWood can provide laminates using a burl veneer top layer, MDF core and aromatic cedar interior, simplifying the production process. High gloss lacquer finishes can be applied more easily to veneered surfaces as well.

All of FormWood's products come in both standard and custom sizes, and we offer solutions to fit all your production needs. Sampling of flitches is available and we can manufacture panels and sheets from the same flitch. Special matching such as book matching, slip matching and sequencing are also available. Our veneer is available in over 100 cuts and we have a large selection of exotics such as rosewood, ebony and mahogany. With a wide array of products and services, FormWood can meet exact specifications of even the most demanding or exotic wooden box projects.

Wood Pool Table Manufacturers

While the origin of billiard table games is somewhat unknown, these games in their many variations have delighted us for centuries. Pocket billiards (pool), carom billiards, and snooker are probably the most popular of these games and are played throughout the world. For many, a billiard table is as personal as their choice of car, home décor or clothing, and its craftsmanship should reflect that. The type of frame construction and finish, the level of detail in the legs and rails, even down to the color of cloth, all contribute to this personal statement. For manufacturers of billiard tables, FormWood supplies hardwood veneer and laminates that will truly set your tables above the rest. Veneer can be applied to table legs, side panels and facings on virtually any flat part of the table. Veneer can be used to create contrasting inlays, exquisite figuring and complex patterns not possible with solid wood, while adding strength to overall construction. From oak, maple and cherry to burls and exotics, our hardwood veneer can be laminated to your choice of core, saving production time and cost. FormWood can create panels and layons to your exact specifications and offers extensive custom matching options such as book matching, slip matching and sequencing. Whether working on large scale production or a custom table, FormWood can create a product to fit almost any application.
