Botanical Name: Populus Nigra.
Mappa burl is also called Poplar burl.
Origin: Europe / France.
The poplar has a multitude of hybrids, hybrids that are found on all temperate continents.
The black poplar (Nigra) referring to the colour of its bark and not to the colour of its wood.
Poplar is a softwood, generally peeled for the manufacture of plywood and food packaging boxes.
Poplar is a plantation wood, very recognizable by its planting in onion rows.
Formerly it was said of him that it should be planted at the birth of a child to harvest it at his wedding and thus finance the newlyweds.
As a burl, it is mainly used in decoration and in high-end furniture. this Mappa Burl became a classic between the 17th and 19th century in Russia and Germany. In France, the Mappa Burl has great success for design furniture during the 60s and 70s.
Like all burls, it is necessary to fill-up some small black knots that are open with wood paste or to use the cookie-cutter technique for larger knots.
In the case of the poplar burl, the filling work might be more important than with other burls.
Genuine wood sliced veneer sheets.
These veneers are raw without a finish or any fleece back.
The veneer surface is similar to plane wood, however, it will be preferable to forecast a light sanding after glueing.
The veneers are offered here as wood sliced sheets of one and unique thickness.
Both faces of these veneers are the same, without fleece back, without glue.
Even if the veneer's sides had been cut relatively straight, it isn't a precise parallel clipping, some veneers may have kept the decreasing shape of the tree, wider at the bottom end and narrower at the top end.
Very occasionally, some veneers sides have traces unclipped wane but our veneers are measured at the narrowest as explained in the paragraph "sizes".
As a genuine natural wood, all finishing products are acceptable as long as these products are meant to be for wood usage.
The choice of finish product has to be consistent with the realisation of final usage.
Burls or Swirls are made up of small knots which gives it its special character, it also means that some of these knots are piercing and open slits are considered to be part of this type of wood.
After glueing, you can fill in the small holes with wood paste to obtain a complete filling, or before glueing cut the larger holes with a cookie cutter and place a veneer washer of the same size taken from a scrap.
By nature burls and swirls are with a lot of counter grain and therefore its veneer is often buckled, even when it has been pressed it may still be slightly buckled.
In order not to split the wood during pressing, it will be recommended to moisten it before glueing (the more the wood will be wet the more it will become flexible and flat).
Once wet, you can press it by drying it (make a rotation with a paper towel that will absorb the humidity) or use a polyurethane type glue (often sold as exterior wood glue in DIY stores) which will stick harder if the wood is damp, it will then be necessary to press with a backing plate, weights and clamps.
Veneers are rolled and well protected in a strong carton chosen for resisting somewhat vigorous handling and being delivered to you in good condition.
Sold by the sheet, decreasing prices upon quantity.
