Compression tests were conducted with veneers in the thickness direction. Thereby differences between the stress-strain curves of veneers and other known stress-strain curves were observed. Based on microscopic studies during the compression, it was possible to describe the deformation behaviour of the veneer, and deviations from known, typical stress-strain curves were substantiated and explained. It was found that a considerable part of the strain occurs by straightening the veneer at a relatively low stress level due to the waved form of veneer sheets and specimens. A distinctive stress plateau has not been established.
