Spalted Beech Wood Veneer

Spalted Beech VeneerSpalting is the name for the effect caused by fungal growth in a tree. It typically occurs in dead and fallen trees but has been found in living (but weakened) specimens as well. The tell tale sign of spalting is the array of stripes known as "zone lines". It is a challenge to find usable spalted trees because often the fungus has deteriorated the wood cells to the point at which the log is too soft to slice. Our selection of spalted beech wood veneer sheets is all sound material with no soft or punky areas.
