Crumpled Maple Wood Veneer

Crumpled Maple VeneerI've never seen anything like this. The veneer in this category came from a very unusual log. The mill called it "crumpled" maple and if you look at the full size pictures, you'll see why. The figure looks like paper that has been balled up and then opened and flattened. The veneer is smooth but the figure looks like random creases. Very cool! A penetrating oil finish is usually enough to bring out the chatoyance though some prefer to use a dye stain to further enhance the grain.

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.
