I recently bought a "box 'o veneer" at Lee Valley. I like to inlay small
strips and curves into many of the things I make and this box has a
suprising selection of reasonably large sheets up to 17" by 17") of veneer.
(It advertises 50 sq feet, but my rough calculation shows that there is more
than 150 square feet and some of the pieces are just breathtaking.)
Anyway, there are a few pieces of bluish grey wood with a grain quite
similar to maple. The colour is so distinct that I suppose I should know
what it is, but I don't. Can you help me out?
I don't think it is. This colour is uniform throughout. I think that in
spalted maple, the fungus tends to travel in the grain giving shots of
discolouration. But I'm certainly no expert on it.
