Pepperwood Veneer

Pepperwood Burl VeneerI've never understood why this species in burl veneer has been so under-recognized. The colors in Pepperwood veneer (Pimiento) are outstanding. Where else can you find bright pink, brilliant red, and random dark "veins" in a single sheet? Combine this veneer with a solid wood counterpart like walnut or wenge and you'll have an outstanding look that even some the best craftspersons have not yet achieved.

Common Names:
  Peruvian pepper, Peruvian peppertree, Pimiento, Pepperina
Scientific Name:
  Schinus S. molle
  Pale pink to medium red with darker contrast lines in random areas
  South America, Peru, Argentina, Chile, and others
  Somewhat soft
  Fine texture with texturing/pockets at the burl areas
  Readily accepts stains and finishes
Interesting Fact:
  Extracts of S. molle have been used as a flavor in drinks and syrups.

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.
