Oak Burl Wood Veneer

Oak Burl VeneerOak burl has a rustic charm that few other burl species can match. The coarse grain, open pores, and light colors make it a great compliment to walnut, cherry, etimoe, and more. It's not uncommon for oak burl to contain bark pockets (called "in-grown bark") and small voids. These character marks only add to the bucolic appeal of this very affordable wood. Over the years, we've found that the supply of this species has stabilized despite a notable increase in demand.
