A common grain characteristic of rotary cut birch veneer is an inconsistent ripple figure throughout the field. It will accept stains and finishes well and is often stained with bold colors or to mimic other species.
Rotary cut birch veneer commonly allows for some defects such as occasional pin knots and mineral streaks. It is a whole piece veneer which has no seams or splice lines with the grain running along the 8’ dimension. Birch is a hardwood of medium density, easy to work with and strong.
