European Plane Cluster Veneer

European Plane Veneer (American Sycamore Veneer)

European Plane is composed of 5 to 9 species which grow in Eurasia and North America, where it is called American Sycamore.

European Plane sapwood, which is 4-8cm wide, is slightly lighter than the heartwood, which is light reddish-brown. The timber is often chemically treated to produce a form of Harewood, in which the background colour becomes silver grey, but the broad rays retain their original colour.

European Plane has a fine texture and the grain is usually straight, although it can be interlocked.

Plane Cluster 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.
