Jeff Vaida owner of Veneer Source and JFV Designs has been in the woodworking business for over 25 years. He has had numerous award winning projects featured in Interior Design Magazine, among others. His expertise in wood veneers and his high quality of workmanship means he is sought out for unusual projects. Jeff is the current President of the Florida Chapter of AWI, and he offers programs for CEU Credits.

The team that Vaida has assembled represents the backbone of his 15-year-old company. Vaida says he started JFV Designs because he identified a need in the Orlando market for high-end custom residential and commercial veneer work. So, he set up his company with an in-house veneer department or Veneer Source.

His veneer expertise subsequently earned him a prestigious local commission - the Chapman Root II house in Ormand Beach, FL, which provided the opportunity to showcase the company's capabilities.

Did you know ...

Although the forest contains 40,000 different species of wood-30% of the earth's surface is covered with forest, 10.5 million square miles of which are managed forests - there are only 600 species that can be used commercially. Of these, only 28 species cover around 75% of the industrial demand for wood, and then only a small amount of these can be utilized for veneer production.
