PS Fumed Red Gum 01.7748 HV

Liquidambar straciflua

Red Gum is tan to reddish-brown in color with dark streaks, with sapwood being creamy white. Located throughout the United States with large commercial production focused in the lower Mississippi Valley.

Fuming is a process in which wood is exposed to ammonia vapors over time, resulting in natural wood veneer taking on a darker, warm color, while retaining many of its original characteristics. Fuming can produce a variety of different shades within a single veneer flitch, so it is recommended that a type sample be requested for approval.
