Notes
Character / Color:
The name itself describes it best. Once considered a defect, the best birdīs-eye flitches are now expensive and in demand. These veneers are most often rotary cut or half-round sliced (in an arc) to produce the most uniform distribution of nice round eyes. Birdīs-eye is most common in maple (shown), but birdīs-eye does rarely occur in a few other species.
Maple is often figured with crossfire, or quilted as well as other highly decorative aberrations like Birdīs Eye Maple, which is very precious.

Usage:
Is used for architectural installations and customer-made furniture as well as custom-made pianos, interiors of elegant elevators and special inlays on furniture and automobile dashboards and door panels.
