Nutmeg Burl Wood Veneer

cat-nut-meg-burl.jpgThis is a truly rare type of burl! The original log owner referred to it as Nutmeg Burl from the very tree from which the seed is used to make the common spice we know as nutmeg but we have also heard of it referred to as Chinese Yew and Indonesian Yellow Cedar. One thing for sure, this wood veneer has a very sweet aroma unlike anything we've ever come across. The bright yellow color is unsual in the world of lumber/veneer and makes a great complement to wenge, walnut, ebony, and other darker species.
