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, and often when Beech get older, the heartwood turns brown.
