Figured Imbuya Wood Veneer

Figured Imbuya VeneerOne sniff and you'll know this species! The spicy aroma is unforgettable and is so strong that it is often called "imported stinkwood". I would not call it stinky but the fragrance is striking. None the less, ipe wood veneer sheets have an unusual color and a lot of shimmering figure. This species has become very popular on high end furniture over the last decade. We expect prices to sky-rocket within the next 2 years.

  Imbuya, Imbuia, Brazilian Walnut, Embuia, Imported Stinkwood (!)

  The imbuya tree grows at altitudes of 2,500 to 4,000 feet above sea level in the Araucaria rain forests. Though there is a good supply of imbuya lumber and veneer in the US, prices are rapidly increasing as the Brazilian government continues to restrict logging of this species.
