It is our intention to be recognised as the leading authority on decorative wood veneer and decorative wood veneered panel products in Australia. To be actively involved in the promotion and expansion of the market of decorative wood veneered panel products manufactured in Australia; developing industry standards; providing education for our industry and all end users; and a forum for networking for its members. Note that the Timber Veneer Association of Australia (TVAA) is the new name of the Decorative Wood Veneers Association (DWVA).This web site uses the revised “Veneer Product Information Manual” (released March 2013) as its base. The information manual was originally designed as an aid to designers, specifiers and all end users to be aware of industry terminology, which has been standardized & circulated to all members of the TVAA enabling them to accurately translate their design requirements into reality. With this web site, we are endeavouring to take the next step in assisting, informing and educating users, by publishing articles of interest and of a technical basis to further enhance your usage of the beautiful woods available.
