Walnut Burl Wood Veneer

cat-walnut-burl-better.jpgWalnut burl is a classic beauty. It is used on everything from fine furniture to automobiles. The rich brown color is frequently accented with a light coat of penetrating stain which brings out the figure in these wood veneer sheets. Walnut is one of only a handful of species that lightens with exposure to UV light. Vintage walnut furniture pieces are usually very warm in color. This lightening process can take months, years, and even decades to achieve.

Looking for large sheets of this species? We also offer it in AA grade paper-backed veneer, which can be applied with contact cement or any other veneer adhesive.

Common Name:
  American Walnut Burl, Claro Walnut
Scientific Name:
  Most burls are formed by the grafting of Juglans nigra to Juglans regia
  Light to medium brown, occasional dark browns

Did You Know:
  Most of the walnut burl that is available is "created" by grafting European walnut to American walnut for the purpose of growing nuts on tree plantations. These trees have a limited production life and when this span of time has concluded, the trees are then harvested for their burl growth.

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.
