Tamo Ash Wood Veneer

cat-tamoash.jpgTamo ash wood veneer is one of the most highly figured species available. It has a rolling figure similar to "quilt" but the shimmer is much stronger. This figure is often called "peanut" which is does not effectively describe the beauty of this veneer. Even in pictures, the iridescence does not fully show. Customers have described it as "3D" and compared it to water cascading over glass.

Common Name:
  Tamo Ash, Japanese Ash
Scientific Name:
  Fraxinus mandschurica
  Creamy white to tan
  Eastern Asia (Korea, Japan, Manchuria)
  Coarse, open pore
  Readily accepts stains but most woodworkers would consider it a crime. Tamo veneers can be top-coated with any finish. Penetrating oils, oil-based polyurethane, lacquer, and tung oil will bring out the character in this wood.
Restrictions:   This species is regulated by CITES and due to regulations set forth by the United States Department of Fish and Wildlife, we can not ship this veneer outside of the USA.
Interesting Fact:
  Tamo Ash veneer like this is offered as an upgrade on Bentley automobiles.

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.
