  • Mahogany Hard Crotch Veneer Plate 1 is one of the most beautiful and unique patterns to be found.
  • The Crotch figure is produced just below where the tree forks into two limbs and is a result of the wood that has been confined and twisted between the two limbs as they increase in girth.
  • Crotches are usually between 2' and 9' long.
  • Many trunks do not end by dividing into two limbs of about equal size. If the Crotch angle is too wide, the Crotch is too short to be useful.
  • If the angle is too narrow, the increased diameter of the limbs will imprison some of the bark and thus ruin the Crotch figure.
  • The hard Crotch is by far the most difficult veneer to be sliced and can often have small cracks due to tension in the log.
  • Logs have to be boiled for approx 2 days prior to slicing and the drying of the veneer is equally important so as to minimise any buckling and cracking of the veneer.
  • RELIANCE VENEER holds good stocks of Plate 1 but it is a popular pattern and stocks can run out fast.
