Olive Ash Burl Wood Veneer

Olive Ash Burl VeneerThere can be mesmerizing patterns in olive ash veneer that are not found in any other type of burl. The tangled threads of dark color seem to float above and through a neutral background layer. Combine this veneer with a darker wood like walnut to get maximum effect. This veneer has an unsual aroma; some say it is similar to the smell of leather!

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.
