This image represents a finished sample approximately 600mm wide. Colours displayed on your screen may differ from those of actual samples and from the veneer used in a project. There may be some slight variation in colour and pattern between dye-batches. Manufacturing features such as join lines and knife-rub-marks may also be present. These are not defects but intrinsic properties of reconstituted dyed wood veneer and its processing.

About this Product: Made from real wood veneer, dyed all the way through, then laminated and re-sliced to make veneer in unique colours and patterns. TrueGrain made from dyed veneer is the most consistent of all wood veneers, and is especially suitable where uniformity is required, such as large areas of wall panelling. It also has the advantage that it is available in patterns and colours not available in natural veneer. Suited to interior, dry, low wear and vertical applications such as panelling and cabinetry. There may occasionally be some very slight variation in colour and pattern between dye-batches. FSC® certified for sustainability.
