Curly Maple Wood Veneer

cat-maple-curly.jpgThese curly maple wood veneer sheets are known by many names including "flame", "tiger", and "fiddleback" maple. The figure, which occurs in less than 1 in 25 logs, contains cross-grain shimmering ripples where cell orientation is balanced but uneven. The real beauty of a great curly maple veneer can be seen without any special finish. 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.

Looking for large sheets of this species? We also offer it in AA grade paper-backed veneer, which 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.
