This product is unsuitable for neophytes; like burls, Swirls are veneers with a lot of counter-grain and, therefore, can be warped; you will have to manage any cracks or open defects.

Like all burls, it is necessary to flatten the veneers, fill up some tiny black knots that are piercing, or use the cookie cutter technique for bigger knots.

Burls, swirls, and crotches:

The burls are made up of pin-knots, which gives it its particular character; it also means that some knots are piercing, and open splits are considered part of this type of wood.

After gluing, you can fill the small holes with wood putty to obtain a complete filling, or before gluing, cut out the larger holes with a cookie cutter and place a veneer washer of the same size taken from a scrap.

By nature, Burls, swirls, and crotches are specialties with a lot of counter-grain, and therefore these veneers are often wavy; even when it has been pressed, they can remain slightly wavy.

To avoid splitting the wood during pressing, it is strongly recommended to moisten it before gluing (the more the wood is moist, the more it will become flexible and flat again).

Once the veneer is wet, you can press it and dry it at the same time (pressing the veneers with paper towels which will absorb the moisture during pressing) or use a Polyurethane-type glue (often sold as exterior wood glue in supermarkets) which will stick stronger if the wood is damp, it will then be necessary to press with a counter board, weights and clamps.


Common name: French Walnut.

Botanical Name: Juglans Regia.

Origin: France and northern Europe.

This wood is appreciated in furniture, decoration, dashboards of luxury cars, violin making of guitars, and old radios.

French Walnut is a somewhat tormented wood with a pronounced natural character.

French Walnut has a brown background, unlike American Walnut, which is dark with a purplish color reflection. With the patina of time and the encaustic, its color will take on a superb deep shiny appearance.

Several specialties are particularly sought-after, such as its Swirl, the root part of the trunk offering a very turbulent grain, or its burl, an outgrowth made up of hundreds of small tiny pinknots.

For the record and according to Pliny the Elder, Juglans comes from Jovis Glans, the glans of Jupiter.

Product Description:

Genuine wood-sliced veneer sheets.

These veneers are raw without a finish or any fleece back.

The veneer surface is similar to plane wood. However, it will be preferable to forecast a light sanding after gluing.

The veneers are offered here as wood-sliced sheets of one and unique thickness.

Both faces of these veneers are the same, without fleece back, without glue.

Even if the veneer's sides had been cut relatively straight, it isn't a precise parallel clipping; some veneers may have kept the decreasing shape of the tree, wider at the bottom end and narrower at the top end.

Very occasionally, some veneers' sides have traces of unclipped wane, but our veneers are measured at the narrowest, as explained in the paragraph "sizes."

As genuine natural wood, all finishing products are acceptable as long these products are meant to be for wood usage.

The choice of the finished product must be consistent with the final usage realization.


To keep the cost of these products as cheap as possible and contrary to other veneers on this website, the pictures of small-size veneers do not represent the available stock.
