Chinese Fir Burl from Yunnan Province

Chinese Fir BurlThe scarcity of this veneer can't be over-stated. The veneers shown below were sliced from a tree found in the Yunnan province of China. The pattern is similar to elm burl but the color is much lighter. Its rarity is unmistakably on par with its is beauty and price. We do not expect it to last very long on our website.

Samples are available.

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.
