Every other piece of veneer used in laying up an individual panel is turned over much like the pages of a book. Thus, the meeting edges produce a matching joint with maximum continuity of grain. This can be used with either plain or quarter-sliced veneers.
Veneer sheets are joined side by side, rather than turned as in book matching, resulting in a repetition of the grain figure but with non-matching joints. The result is a panel which displays the maximum color uniformity and is commonly used with quartered and rift-sliced veneers.
Veneer sheets are deliverately mismatched by random selection of the pieces from one or more flitches. This produces a casual or "board-like" effect.
