wood tissue box cover is covered in select
Birdseye maple wood veneers.
Birdseye maple has a medium density and variable color. The outer rings of the
tree create lumber that's usually a creamy, light amber color with darker
Birdseye patterns. The inner rings, called heartwood, might be deep amber or
reddish with dark brown Birdseye. Depending on the frequency of the Birdseye
swirls, each 1/8" to 3/8" wide (0.3-1 cm), the wood may be extremely valuable.
Refined specialty products, such as the dashboard of a Rolls Royce, are made of
Birdseye maple. Since it is such a rare and unusual timber type, it's very
expensive, often several times that of ordinary hardwood.
