Forza - Defining Doors
Veneer Guide

Figure Types & Features

Natural growth irregularities within trees can produce stunning decorative effects when the logs are sliced using a particular method. Burrs (known as burls in America) come from growths that form on trees caused by the loss of a branch or wound to the bark.

The term figured is the most commonly used to describe particularly interesting grain pattern but Fiddleback describes a more pronounced/regular pattern while curl is more open/less obvious.
 

Heavy Birds Eye Cluster Burr

The "eye" shape, tiny pithy 
explosions tightly packed are most commonly found in Maple

Small tight clusters of knots sporadically appearing in the tree growth create a highly 
decorative effect 

Flat slicing abnormal growth
sections within the tree trunk produces highly irregular veneer grain markings 

     
Curl Fiddleback  Pommele

The curl cloud pattern created by
slicing the trunk before an intersection is most effective when layed in a quarter pattern 

Viewing fiddleback sapele from different angles transforms the surface appearance 

Pommele is used to describe a velvety mottled appearance 

     
Quilted Crotch

Extraordinary shapes in quilted
maple give the effect of mecury running across the panel 

Crotch wood is cut from the
junction between trunk and branch creating random grain direction
