The Medium Figured Curly Maple Wood Veneer is not as intense as the highly figured. This Curly Maple veneer is cream to light reddish brown and figured with scattered curls and/or blisters. The curl/figure is sometimes referred to as "cross fire." The difference between Curly Maple and Fiddleback Maple is how it is cut. Curly comes from flat cuts while Fiddleback is quarter sawn.
