Good Questions: It is Possible to Use Veneer Baseboards?

baseboard051309.jpgVanessa writes: Hi-I am almost done remodeling my place and am on to baseboards. I would like to use something that is "less"-impact, like oak veneer, rather than solid boards. I have searched high and low on both the internet and local lumber yards to no avail. This is expecially puzzling since door jambs of oak veneer are common, but only available in shorter lengths than practical for baseboards. Can you help?
