Fiddleback Maple Wood Veneer

Instrument Grade Curly MapleWe recently found this instrument grade curly maple (aka fiddleback) veneer during a trip to Germany. Until recently I had never seen anything with such an amazing curl and shimmer so we bought the entire stock. What you will find here is outstanding veneer that exceeds the normal 5-star rating that we use. The curly figure in these veneers is truly exceptional and in most cases, the picture just does not do justice to the extreme shimmer and chatoyance.

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.
