Our experience producing architectural plywood paneling and components is extensive and varied. Walls, ceilings, columns, tabletops – anywhere you desire to add the richness and elegance of wood, Eggers has the right expertise and knowledge to bring it to perfect form.
We have the capabilities to produce architectural and custom plywood paneling to exact specifications, including:
- Acoustical plywood panels
- Curved plywood panels – 36″ to 600″ radius available
- Sizes up to 72″ wide x 192″ long
- Matching doors, conference tabletops and furniture components
- Veneer or lumber banding
- Fire-rated construction available
- Various core constructions
Our custom matching options result in superior quality and aesthetic standards. We offer matching of faces within panels to include anything from balance and run matching to the more specialized diamond and sunburst. The creative choice is yours with our architectural plywood when choosing the matching of faces between panels. Eggers offers blueprint, sequence and end matching.
Whether you’re in a majestic boardroom or the tight confines of a yacht, our finely crafted and exquisitely matched panels lift moods and minds to higher levels.

Glossary of Veneer Matching Terms:
Matching Between Adjacent Veneer Leaves
Book Match – Matching between adjacent leaves of veneer on one panel face. Every other leaf of veneer is turned over, so that adjacent leaves are “opened” as two pages of a book. The fibers of wood, slanting in opposite directions in the adjacent leaves, create a characteristic light, dark when the surface is seen from an angle.
Slip Match – Matching between adjacent leaves on one panel face. Adjoining leaves are slipped out in sequence, with all the same face side being exposed.
Swing Match – Matching between adjacent leaves on one panel face. Every other leaf of veneer is slipped and spun 180 degrees.
Random Match – Matching between adjacent leaves on one panel face. Random selection in arrangement of veneer leaves from one or more flitches producing a deliberate mismatch between the pieces of veneer. (link to bulletin)
Matching Within Individual Panel Faces
Center Match – An equal number of veneer components or leaves of equal width (prior to edge trimming) matched with a joint in the center of the panel to achieve horizontal symmetry. A small amount of the figure is lost.
Balance Match – Two or more veneer components or leaves of equal width (prior to edge trimming) to make up a single face.
Running Match – Each panel face is assembled from as many veneer leaves as necessary. Any portion left over from the last leaf may be used to start the next panel face. (link to bulletin)
Matching from Panel to Panel
Blueprint Match – Panels manufactured to exact sizes required for project, matched by area with doors and other components matched in sequence.
Simple Blueprint – A set of matched panels of varying width and length all from the same length of veneer. The bottom edge of all panels must line up horizontally. No end matching allowed.
Sequence Match – A set of matched panels all of the same width and length. No end matching allowed.
Set Match – Panels matched in defined sets of up to 9 panels per set without matching from set to set. Example; an item of 30 panels matched as 5 sets with 6 panels per set.

End Matching Options
Architectural End Match – Leaves are vertically flipped and then horizontally booked or slipped.
Continuous End Match – Multiple panels end matched for length using a single length of veneer. May be made as a single panel for length and then cut apart or made as several individual end matched panels.
Stack Match – Manufacture panel faces so the leaf widths are the same and the splice joints line up. There is no expectation that the grain will match. Leaves of veneer are first book or slip matched across a panel face, the veneer sequence is continued on the vertically adjacent panel above.
Swing End Match – End matching technique where the veneer is rotated end for end 180 degrees. Horizontally, the veneer is book or slip matched and then the leaf that will end match is swung 180 degrees. Swing end match does not result in the best grain match but does keep the same face side of the veneer exposed vertically and the splice joints will line up.
Similar Color and Grain – Cut to size or set matched panels with requirements that all panels be similar in appearance for color and grain.
