Troy, MI, January 11, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Extending its already substantial list of wood veneer species, today Oakwood Veneer announced Lemonwood Veneer as the next member in the lineup.
"Everyone is looking for a little color," Peter Rodgers, Oakwood's owner said. "And Lemonwood is a very nice shade of light yellow that can lighten up any furniture, cabinetry, or display piece that it is used on."
Technically, Lemonwood is an incorrect name, as it actually does not come from real lemon trees. The true term is Degame Veneer, which is also known and used in certain circumstances. In the U.S., however, more people use Lemonwood. The Degame species grows in the tropical regions of South America and Central America. The wood occasionally varies in color from light brown to white, but the vast majority of pieces, and all of Oakwood Veneer’s sheets, are the characteristic light yellow shade.
Lemonwood is hard to find and rare, and is mostly not available in veneer format. It is also not usually obtainable as lumber, however it has always been very popular as a component of hunting bows, as well as billiard cues and carving projects.
With over 250 species, Oakwood is proud to have one of the most, or possibly the most, extensive species lists for backed wood veneer in the nation.
"Some companies have a long list of items and a large percentage are not in stock at any given time," Rodgers said. "Oakwood has almost 100% of our price list items in stock daily, including our new Lemonwood Veneer species."
