Figured Bubinga Wood Veneer

cat-bubinga-quilted.jpgQuilted bubinga is a beautiful and lustrous veneer. It is often used on fine cabinetry and furniture and is known for its eye-catching color and shimmer. The red and pinkish hues in this species are quickly affected by exposure to UV light. With exposure, the pink colors often become more reddish and occasional a dark purple color. This change in color should not be considered a drawback. In fact, the aged color is beautiful.

Looking for large sheets of this species? We also offer it in AA grade paper-backed veneer that can be applied with contact cement or any other veneer adhesive.

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.
