br>END GRAIN UPDATE from directly above
veneer with color that is just a shade more red than the actual wood. The true color is very similar to walnut but the grain is much smoother than would be normal for walnut, and there is a pronounced ribbon stripe that does not show up well in this pic.

ribbon stripe veneer
quartersawn ribbon stripe veneer --- this is the web pic of the lot from which my own sample was taken and once again you can see how this vendor adds a shine to her pics that is not in the wood. The ribbon stripe, however, does show up better in her pic than in mine.
