Beech Wood Veneer

Beech VeneerThough very popular in the early and mid 1990's, ordinary straight-grain beech has largely been ignored by most woodworkers and cabinet makers. We're proud to offer something a little different. This quilted beech has a striking pattern of rolling waves. Whenever we ship a sheet of this species, we stand in front of it rubbing our eyes trying to focus and figure out the pattern of quilt.
