Note: COLOR VARIATION WILL OCCUR IN THE GRAIN OF ALL WOOD SPECIES.
This is an inherent characteristic caused by the annual growth rings found in all hardwoods and the manner in which the boards and veneers are cut across these growth rings. In some species, this color variation is very subtle. In other species this color variation is obvious and at times radical.
The process of finishing hardwood veneers determines whether these variations are enhanced or subdued. Natural finishes will show color variations in the grain and enhance the beauty of the wood to its fullest extent. Other stains and finishes tend to blend in these variations to some extent dependent upon the depth of color and the particular method of application.
