Grade "B": Solid-piece surface has light and uniform colour. A few small pin knots and some brown streaks are allowed. Veneer of this grade is intended for natural finishes. Patches are not allowed. The majority of Grade B veneers are the equivalent of the American “white birch” faces. 

Grade "BB": Solid-piece face has light and uniform colour. A few sound tight knots are permitted. Open knots and defects are eliminated and replaced with small oval or round veneer patches before gluing. The veneer selected for the patch is of the same colour as the basic face veneer. Generally there are very few patches per face and many users purchase this grade for natural finishes.

Grade "CP"Solid-piece face is very close to Grade BB in quality. Thin splits are allowed. The oval or round patch may have a different colour than the face veneer. There are more patches per face allowed than in Grade BB.

Grade "C": Open defects such as open knots and veneer splits are allowed. Sanding is not required. Recommended for the building of containers and dust panels; can be used for crating and in manufacturing, where construction and strength are more important than the appearance.
