Magnolia Burr Veneer

Magnolia Burr Veneer

Commercial Magnolia consists of three species and the lumber produced by all three species is simply called Magnolia, being the genus dedicated to Pierre Magnol (1638-1715), professor of botany and medicine and director of the botanic garden at Montpellier, France.

The natural range of Magnolia trees extends across the eastern and midwest United States from Long Island to Texas, and from the Appalachians to the Ozarks northward to Ohio.

Magnolia sapwood is creamy yellowish white, while the  heartwood is light to dark brown with a tinge of yellow or greenish to purple-black streaks or patches. Magnolia veneer is generally straight grained and has a close, uniform texture, with no characteristic odour.

Magnolia Burr veneer is caused by abnormal growth, or excrescences, which are common to most trees. Irritation or injury forms an interwoven, contorted, or gnarly mass of dense woody tissue from which this veneer is harvested.
