logo_formwoodHood Distribution has partnered with FormWood Industries to provide our customer base with high quality wood veneer and veneer related products. Since 1972, FormWood Industries has been a leading manufacturer of custom veneer faces, flexible veneer, NBL wood-on-wood laminates, architectural veneer plywood, and edgebanding.




Hardwood Veneer

Veneers make it possible to utilize wood in more novel and unique applications than ever before. Flexibility, pliability, sizes and sequencing and matching are all characteristics Hood Distribution and FormWood Industries can offer regarding your veneer needs.

Veneer Paper Backed Sheets: For true versatility, nothing compares to the natural beauty of paper backed, premium matched hardwood veneer. Each sheet is tenderized and sanded to meet stringent quality inspections.

NBL (No Black Line): NBL laminates provide the custom woodworker with superior flexibility and performance when compared to other wood-backed products. NBLs patented 3-ply construction produces an extremely pliable, moistureresistant sheet without the black edge associated with phenolic and foil backers.

Duraback Hardwood Veneer: DuraBack™ is extremely bendable, unlike standard laminate backers. DuraBack™ hardwood veneer can be pre-finished, and may be used where solvent-based adhesive restrictions require woodworkers to use water-based glues.

PSA Veneer Sheets: PSA Hardwood Veneer provides a simple and easy alternative for applying veneer without the need for a secondary adhesive. Utilizing the best quality 3M Brand PSA adhesives, peel & stick veneer provides a permanent bond to virtually any smooth substrate that is dry and free of dust and contaminants.

2-Ply Hardwood Veneer: 2-Ply hardwood veneer has a perpendicular face-to-back construction utilizing a thin acrylic membrane to provide protection against bubbling, glue seepage and telegraphing. The crossband construction allows the 2-Ply veneer to bend on moderate curves in the horizontal or vertical direction.

Cherry, Maple, Red Oak and Walnut veneers in both 10-mil paperback and 2-ply wood are readily available in our branches. Other species and configurations are available through our efficient special order quick-ship program.



Wood Veneer Edgebanding
Edgebanding is produced by joining individual pieces of veneer together into a continuous master roll by finger-jointing the veneer. The rolls are laminated with fleece, then sanded and slit to finished widths. Three types of FormEdge veneer edgebanding are available: non-glued, preglued, and prefinished.

  • Automatic (Non-Glued) Fleece Backed Edgebanding – 7/8″ x 500′ rolls with a thickness of .022″ sanded to 180 grit.
  • Pre-glued Fleece Backed Veneer Edgebanding – 13/16″ x 250′ rolls with a thickness of .034″ (based on .012 of hot melt) sanded to 180 grit.
  • Pre-finished Automatic (Non-Glued) Veneer Edgebanding – 7/8″ x 500′ rolls with a thickness of .020″. Standard “satin” finish clear coat with 1.5 mils in coverage. Three species (Maple, Cherry, Red Oak) are available.

Alder, Birch, Cherry, Hickory, Mahogany, Maple, Red Oak, Sapele, and Walnut edgebanding are readily available in our branches in pre-glued and non-glued. Other species and pre-finished are available through our efficient special order quick-ship program.

Polyester/PVC Edgebanding
Colored polyester/PVC edgebanding is produced pre-glued and automatic (non-glued) and available in rolls to match the majority of the standard melamine colors. Special orders for non-traditional colors can be accommodated. Polyester/PVC edgebanding provides that finished look to institutional casework and European styled cabinetry.


Custom Architectural Panels

A state of the art plywood facility is available to laminate high-quality veneer to a myriad of substrate offerings. This also allows the manufacture of small runs of material. For most species, the minimum order requirement is only one panel! Architectural plywood is ideal for custom and high end projects. Hood Distribution and FormWood Industries are able to provide architectural plywood to your specifications:

  • Sequencing and flitch matching create a similar look.
  • Balance match and center-balance match are ideal for continuity in wall panels.
  • End-matching can extend visual length for use in tall wall panels or conference tables.
  • Blue print matching can tackle intricate jobs.

These custom panels are produced to your specifications through our efficient special order quick-ship program.
