I present here to you the esthetic characteristics that some of particular veneerings
These veneerings are taken into a sick part of trunk which has an abnormal excrescence.
The gnarl is characterized by the presence of little budding in shape of annulus
the ones close to the others. Some species of wood are more appreciated than others,
like, for instance, the elm gnarl whose design and colour are particularly rich.
This king of veneering is used for the making of furniture, little decorative objects
and turned wood works. They are sold under an irregular shape and in very varied
sizes (15 cm to 1 m of length), these veneerings are the most expensive on the market.
Contrary to the veneering more classical, the bur comes from the stub of tree. These
veneerings are very frail and there are sometimes some lacks : in that case, it's
necessary to stop out for the finishing when they have a little size because if the
holes are too large, one must leave the spoilt piece out. The veins are intertwined
and present a twisted grain, what gives a peculiar esthetic aspect.
They have a motive in shape of rib in the middle, while their edges own a design
The design of this kind of veneering presents an alternance of dark and light of
sheen on the whole width of the leaf of wood. This characteristic comes from some
woods having an undulating grain like, for instance, the sycamore.
These veneerings are cut perpendicularly at the fork of tree, that is to say the
part of trunk which reaches the branches. This part presents a symmetrical design
Some of species like the sycamore, poplar, pear and other light woods can be coloured
artificially. The range of tints is varied. In some cases, these veneerings are dried
at high pressure to obtain an optimal penetration of the colour.
