Bubinga Burl Wood Veneer

Bubinga Burl VeneerThe bubinga tree can reach a height of up to 150 feet and can have a trunk diameter of over 6 feet. Bubinga is most often cut into veneer when the log shows the potential for quilted figure. The burl form of bubinga is incredibly rare. Several mills have insisted that it did not exist. We were lucky and found a small stash of it not long ago. It is stunningly gorgeous and extremely expensive. The log buyer at the mill indicated that this burl was the first he had found in 20+ years of buying bubinga logs. Amazing!

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.
