Redwood Burl Wood Veneer

cat-redwood-burl.jpgRedwood is a close cousin of the famous sequoia tree of California. Certainly the most prized growth/grain in redwood is burl which generally grows underground and must be excavated with specialized machinery. Typically used on automotive dashboards and small case goods, these redwood burl wood veneer sheets have a pleasant color and shimmer when top coated with lacquer or oil-based polyurethane. It is such a beautiful wood, that it is hard to believe it's not an imported burl species!

Please Note: Redwood burl is one of the most brittle veneers available. End, edge, and center splitting is not uncommon. Be sure to expect some degree of splits in the lots listed below.

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.
