After working 41 years in the high-end exotic wood industry, Interwood has pretty much seen it all. We have seen remarkable trees in all colors, grains and figure types and on very rare occasions we find things which we never expected to exist. In this case, we are proud to share with you a one of a kind freak of nature, BIRDSEYE ZEBRAWOOD. A combination of color, grain, and figure type make this log a distinctive, unique, and unparalleled Gem of the Forest.

Having been in the veneer industry for over 41 years, I have never seen any one tree produce the quality, color, consistency, and size of veneer which this Sapeli tree has produced. It is truly a marvel in its own right.
The tree yielded 1,253 bundles of veneer totaling 436,896 square feet, which averages 349 square feet per bundle. The average width is over 12 inches with the widest being 24 inches. 75% of the veneers produced from this tree are over 12 feet long.
A tree of this magnitude demands a special architectural project. This gem of the forest is 100% FSC Pure.
