Curly Maple Wood Veneer

cat-maple-curly.jpgThese curly maple wood veneer sheets are known by many names including "flame", "tiger", and "fiddleback" maple. The figure, which occurs in less than 1 in 25 logs, contains cross-grain shimmering ripples where cell orientation is balanced but uneven. The real beauty of a great curly maple veneer can be seen without any special finish. A penetrating oil finish is usually enough to bring out the chatoyance though some prefer to use a dye stain to further enhance the grain.

Looking for large sheets of this species? We also offer it in AA grade paper-backed veneer, which can be applied with contact cement or any other veneer adhesive.
