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. This is because this product is made from mixed natural undyed veneer from multiple logs, and like all wood products there may be variation in colour from log to log. TrueGrain fineline veneers such as this one may have a very fine “pin-stripe” effect due to the different layers of veneer laminations not being absolutely identical in colour. Manufacturing features such as join lines and knife-rub-marks may also be present. These are not defects but intrinsic features of wood veneer and its processing.
