Beech Wood Veneer

Beech VeneerThough very popular in the early and mid 1990's, ordinary straight-grain beech has largely been ignored by most woodworkers and cabinet makers. We're proud to offer something a little different. This quilted beech has a striking pattern of rolling waves. Whenever we ship a sheet of this species, we stand in front of it rubbing our eyes trying to focus and figure out the pattern of quilt.

Common Name:
  Beech (though it is often erroneously called Norway Maple)
Scientific Name:
  Fagus sylvatica
  Buttery yellow to tan
  Sweden, Norway, Italy, southern England, Spain, and France
  Smooth, fine grain
  Readily accepts stains and finishes
Did You Know:  

The European beech is a deciduous tree that can grow to 60 feet tall with a foliage girth of 50 feet! Another tidbit... the beech tree hosts ectomycorrhizal fungi on its roots which assist in the absorbtion and uptake of water and nutrients from the soil.

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.
