English Brown Oak Wood Veneer

English Brown Oak VeneerThis veneer is a common English oak that has been affected by the beefsteak polypore fungus (Fistulina hepatica) which is commonly found in Britain and occasionally found in North America. The fungus imparts a reddish brown tone in the cells of living and fallen trees which turns the timber into a much more desirable product. The aged and rich brown color is one of the most pleasant natural tones found in wood veneer.

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.
