Freak Maple Burl Wood Veneer

Freak Maple Burl Wood Veneer SheetsThis has to be one of the strangest maple burl wood veneer sheets that we've ever seen. All of the veneer in this category came from a single log which contained an unusual grain pattern. Take a look at some of the pictures shown in the listings below. It is considered a burl but it's certainly not the kind of figure that you might expect to see in maple. The veneer mill simply called it a "freak burl" and the grain pattern was striking enough to make me want it for our customers.

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.
