Its warm and natural appearance with its clear colour and fine grain makes Beech one of the most used woods in Europe.
Beech is an european species that mostly comes from Western and Central Europe. Compared with other european species Beech is large in dimension. Moreover, in some regions the Beech tends to have a great tension and buckles as a result of irregular annual ring formation.
This veneer is available either crown cut or quarter cut and as a constructional veneer. Its grain is fine and its fibre is straight, although slightly twisted fibres may occur in very thick trees. Growth rings are regularly differentiated, the spring area is much wider and lighter colour than the summer area.
Its colour varies from orange white to a more or less intense pink or reddish-brown. The sapwood and heartwood are not clearly separated, often when Beech get older, the heartwood turns brown.
As a fairly plain wood veneer, Beech Crown Cut is widely used in many areas of woodworking including interior doors, kitchens and furniture-making, and is excellently suited for bending. Beech also is well-suited for work benches as well as being wood construction lumber.
Beech Crown Cut Fumé speeds up the natural ageing process. The fuming reacts with the tanin in the older mature wood, changing the colour to various shades of clear brown to dark brown, sometimes slightly streaked lighter or darker. Our specific fuming process with higher pressure levels helps to achieve a unique dark tone rarely found in the market.
The result is dark veneer that is perfect for sophisticated yet discrete environments at the same time. It adapts to the latest trends and developments, offering every time more value.
Beech Crown Cut Fumé brings an exceptional chance to reassert the natural character of this veneer offering a new finishing and letting appreciate perfectly its beautiful crowns.
