Olive Ash Burl Veneer. Brass. Interior Shelves. We have sold many masterpieces of American furniture with beautiful book-matched veneer. Choosing the perfect, most highly figured section of wood and cutting it into such thin layers is as challenging for craftsmen today as it was two centuries ago. This cabinet, covered on all sides with abstract patterned matching olive ash burl is a tour-de-force. The case is raised on a minimal and cubist brass base that serves to display it to its best advantage. Veneer Patterns will vary from piece to piece.
