RC Birds Eye Maple Heavy 02.9627 HV

Acer saccharum

Birds Eye Maple is a type of veneer from Maple trees that displays many tiny swirly indentations in its figure that look like tiny bird eyes, and is often appears alongside other unique forms of figuring. This rare and unexplained phenomenon makes this veneer highly valuable.

The example of Birds Eye Maple shown here is “heavy”, indicating that it is blanketed with more of these swirly “eye” indentations than is typical in Birds Eye Maple.
