BIRD'S EYE MAPLE
 

Bird's Eye Maple
Scientific Name: Acer Saccharum
Family: Aceraceae
Origin: North America

Finishing: readily accepts stains and finishes

This is a peeled veneer which generally gives good widths. Colour is a white to cream/yellow. The feature of the veneer looks like water droplets have fallen onto a piece of hard maple or a bird has been pecking at the grain. Little pin knots which when finished bounce back at you almost giving a 3-D quilting effect.
The higher the density of this feature, the higher the price. It is also available in different colours after a secondary dying process.

Birdseye Maple is a common component in private jets, automobiles, musical instruments, architectural panels, kitchen utensils, entertainment centers, picture frames, kitchen cabinets, furniture and jewelry/cigar boxes.
