Quartersawn Angelim Wood Veneer

Angelim VeneerThis species is new to our website and it has already become very popular. Angelim has a grain that is nearly identical to that of wenge but it has a lighter color. This color darkens a bit when a finish is applied but it's no darker than the unfinished color of wenge. Though this tree is not uncommon in South America, it is exceedingly rare to find it in veneer form. Angelim is a beautiful veneer with a subtle ribbon-stripe pattern created by the quarter-slicing technique.

Common Name:
  Angelium, Angelim Nero/Claro, Palma, Sucupira (?), Royal Walnut
Scientific Name:
  Vatairea heteroptera
  Milk chocolate brown (lighter than wenge)
  Peru, Brazil, Bolivia, Venezuela
  Primarily hard
  Coarse texture with interlocked grain
  Readily accepts stains and finishes

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.
