This is the Last longboard I completed. The top veneer sheet is some sort of burled wood I got from a friend, but I’m not quite sure what type of wood it is… any ideas?

Since you are on the west coast , It looks like Eucalyptus or Redwood burl that’s a guess through. I lived in L.A. for awhile and worked for a millwork co. there . That is what we used for local veneer. I remember surfing down there it was so cold a wet suit was mandatory goood luck hang ten as we used to say.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, this is actually a skateboard deck. the difference between a ‘skateboard’ and a ‘longboard’ is that one is for just cruising and one is used in skateparks for tricks and things.

Too purty to stand on! Nice work. Have no idea about the type of wood burl.
