Nutmeg Burl Wood Veneer

cat-nut-meg-burl.jpgThis is a truly rare type of burl! The original log owner referred to it as Nutmeg Burl from the very tree from which the seed is used to make the common spice we know as nutmeg but we have also heard of it referred to as Chinese Yew and Indonesian Yellow Cedar. One thing for sure, this wood veneer has a very sweet aroma unlike anything we've ever come across. The bright yellow color is unsual in the world of lumber/veneer and makes a great complement to wenge, walnut, ebony, and other darker species.

Common Name:
  Indonesian Yellow Cedar, Chinese Yew
Scientific Name:
  Myristica fragrans
  Bright yellow with dark brown burl eyes
  China, Spice Islands, Sri Lanka
  Medium to soft

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.
