Extra Large Walnut Burl Wood Veneer

cat-walnut-burl-better.jpgThis is our selection of extra large walnut burl veneers. The rich brown color is frequently accented with a light coat of penetrating stain which brings out the figure in these wood veneer sheets. Walnut is one of only a handful of species that lightens with exposure to UV light. Vintage walnut furniture pieces are usually very warm in color. This lightening process can take months, years, and even decades to achieve.

Looking for even larger sheets of this species? We also offer it in paper-backed veneer, which can be applied with contact cement or any other veneer adhesive.

Common Name:
  American Walnut Burl, Claro Walnut
  Light to medium brown, occasional dark browns
  North America
  Open-pore, fine

Did You Know?   Walnut burl comes usually from the root bole of walnut trees, where a large ball often occurs. This is most common on orchard trees, which are northern California walnut (Juglans hindsii) with the nut producing English walnut (Juglans regia) grafted to it. Some burl may also be found at the graft line of these trees. The burls are sustainably harvested when the trees are removed to replant the orchard.
