This image represents a finished sample approximately 600mm wide. The appearance of the veneer your screen, on a sample and that used in a project may differ from each other, because wood is a natural product and may vary in appearance from log to log and within a log. Veneer may have natural features such as pin knots, figure, mild-indentations, slanted/curved direction of grain, paling-fence-effect, different leaf widths, off-centred crowns etc., and manufacturing features such as join lines and knife-rub-marks. These are not defects but intrinsic features of natural wood veneer and its processing. The dyeing process used to make these veneers may accentuate such features and there may also be some colour variation between dye-batches and between logs, because different logs may take-up the stain to differing degrees.
