Amboyna Burr Veneer (Amboyna Burl)

Gold Amboyna veneer Red Amboyna veneer

Amboyna is also known as Andaman Padauk, New Guinea Rosewood, Angsana, Sena and Narra. It is found in the Philippines, Borneo, Burma, New Guinea, and the Malaysian Archipelago. It is often planted for shade along roadsides and as an ornamental.

Amboyna sapwood is whitish or pale straw colour and clearly defined from the heartwood, which is light yellow to golden brown, or reddish brown to a distinct red

Amboyna veneer grain is interlocked and sometimes wavy, together with dark growth bands produce an attractive figure and texture moderately fine to moderately coarse and uneven due to the ring-porous structure. The wood is somewhat lustrous and has a fragrant odour which persists even when dry.

Amboyna Burr veneer is caused by abnormal growth, or excrescences, which are common to most trees. Irritation or injury forms an interwoven, contorted, or gnarly mass of dense woody tissue from which this veneer is harvested.
