High figure anigre veneer, also known as quartered high figure anigre wood veneer or architectural anigre veneer, is typically a blonde, light yellowish-brown to a sometimes pinkish cream wood that ages to a nice golden brown color. It is available as FlexVen™ 10 and FlexVen™ 20 paper backed 4′ x 8′ flexible veneer sheets with a PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive) option. Non figured Anigre wood veneer is also available in the 4′ x 10′ size and with Tuf-Pli™ polyback or Pli-Flex™ wood on wood backers as special order.
It is usually book matched with the grain running along the 8’ dimension. Quarter cut, high figure anigre is sometimes referred to as rift cut fiddleback anigre. High figure anigre wood veneer is lustrous and rather striking in appearance. Anigre is a hardwood of medium density that has occasional light silica inclusions. Generally high figure anigre wood veneer is considered a premium grade and has a fine to medium texture with tight pores but at times has been known to be coarse. Anigre wood veneer will accept stains and finishes well which accentuate the figure. It is usually finished with a clear coat that preserves the warmth and beauty of the wood’s natural color.
