An Attitude of Exactitude: Custom Deck Construction and the Precision of the Veneer Inspector

The 2nd and final run of decks went into production up in Vancouver the other day.
There had been some delays due to structural changes in the veneers at the molecular level – that is not a joke – but I finally got up there and met with Andy and The Veneer Inspector.
He may seem rather small for a veneer inspector but I can assure you it is that very smallness that allows him to peer so deeply into the structure of the wood.
The veneer inspector raises his safety specs
As you can see he takes safety EXTREMELY seriously.
The veneer inspector checks his ear defenders
“What the fuck have you been doing to these veneers?” he asked and then turned to his father, “You’ll have to excuse my language papa but really, it seems like they’d rather eat samosas than give even a passing interest to the chemistry and physics involved in the processes here.”
The veneer inspector attempts to discombobulateAndy began laughing, resulting in small chunks of pastry dropping among the sawdust.
The inspector shot him a stern glance and Andy quit laughing, looked at the floor and quietly chewed his samosa.
Things get serious
“These are the veneers?” The inspector asked.
“Yes, sir.”
these are the veneers
He peered deeply into the wood. It was like he was staring into the very fabric of the universe itself.

“The water based stain will be perfect for these!”
“Aha! Of course! Thank you sir!.”
The veneer inspector says yes
