Chestnut Burl Wood Veneer

cat-chestnut-burl.jpgContrary to popular opinion, this species is rare and becoming more so each day. The chestnut tree is simply not a species that is known for producing large, clean burls. Our chestnut burl wood veneer sheets have a very pleasant array of tan and warm brown colors. This veneer species complements many other species very well. Several of our customers have combined this veneer with darker veneers such as walnut and wenge. The finished projects are simply gorgeous!

Scientific Name:
  Castanea sativa
  Tan to light brown, with dark brown bark inclusions
  Asia, Europe

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.
