Finger-joint panels are single-layer panels made of best natural wood. Because the finished panels are strong and keep their shape well, they are ideal for high quality furniture and interior decoration such as staircases and window sills. The finger-joint panels are made mainly from beech and oak, but ash, cherry and maple are also used. Lamellas made from these broad-leaved tree species are glued together along their whole width and length, forming large blocks. Prior to manufacturing, the lamellas are dried to the same humidity as the finished product. The result is a product that looks great and performs better than solid wood.
