The typical eucalyptus burl that can be found at most dealers is not a burl in the sense that it grew like a wart on the outside of the tree. The veneers in this category are from a true eucalyptus burl that grew in Australia. This protuberence yielded a very fine veneer with a smooth high-end look. This would be a great compliment to a project made primarily of walnut. Very limited availabilty.
