English Brown Oak Wood Veneer

English Brown Oak VeneerThis veneer is a common English oak that has been affected by the beefsteak polypore fungus (Fistulina hepatica) which is commonly found in Britain and occasionally found in North America. The fungus imparts a reddish brown tone in the cells of living and fallen trees which turns the timber into a much more desirable product. The aged and rich brown color is one of the most pleasant natural tones found in wood veneer.
