Bossé Cedar Wood Veneer

Bosse VeneerKnown for its aroma, which is very similar to Spanish cedar, Bossé  ('boss-say')can come in an array of grain types. Most of our Bossé wood veneer sheets have the highly sought-after quilted figuring. Very few veneers have this kind of chatoyance in the grain. The color is an excellent companion to a dark brown fine-grain veneer such as walnut.
