Got this veneer in a variety pack and have no idea what it is. I would like to identify the species so that I can try to find some more.
My guess is that it is either some type of ash or olive-ash. That’s from looking at images at Hobbithouse but there was really nothing very close.
This was supposed to be a top for a tissue holder but some idiot cut the bevels the wrong way (oops, guess that idiot must have been me!). If I recut them correctly, the top won’t fit and I don’t have enough of this veneer left over. Sometimes I wish I could kick myself in the butt!!! Anyway, I’ve veneered up another top with a different veneer and you should be seeing it within the next week or so.
The color match from the image to the actual veneer is pretty close. So if you can id this species, I’d sure appreciate it!
