Ash Burl Wood Veneer

cat-ash-burl.jpgLarge, clean, and well-figured ash burl veneer is notoriously difficult to find. More commonly, you'll find ash burl with small dark brown knots which add a touch of "character" to the uniform creamy color. Ash burls are most often found at the trunk of the tree (as opposed to under-ground) which further indicates that the burl growth is the result of external influences such as insects, forest animals, and humans. With a vacuum press, ash burl is very easy to adhere to a substrate.

Tip from Joe

I've found that iPhones and iPads display reasonably accurate colors of our veneer photos.
 
Rendering variations on some computer monitors can cause our pictures to appear different from the actual veneer.
