Satinwood Wood Veneer

Satinwood VeneerGenuine satinwood is getting harder to find these days due to overharvesting. In fact, the veneers shown below are the first we've come across in over 18 years of business. There are few species that have the glowing color and grain pattern of true Ceylon satinwood whether it is used as an accent, inlay, or full project panel. We don't expect these veneers to remain on our site for long!

Common Names:
  Ceylon Satinwood, East Indian Satinwood, Citron
Scientific Name:
  Chloroxylon swietenia
  Cream to warm yellow in color, but occasionally amber or bright yellow.
  Sri Lanka, India, Madagascar
  Very hard
  Medium texture with interlocked grain
  Somewhat difficult to stain but readily accepts most finishes.
  Sanding dust from this species can cause skin irritation. This species is typically very expensive due to a sizable loss factor attributed to difficulty in properly drying the veneer.

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.
