Also known as: Melawis

Botanical Name: Gonystylus spp

Origin: South East Asia

Description: Cream to pale yellow in colour, this veneer is principally valued for its plain appearance. The logs, which are usually of small diameter, are flat sliced to produce a veneer that is so evenly textured that it is not always easy to distinguish at first glance between crown and straight grained material. It is mainly used if a clean, plain and smooth look, along with a light colour is the objective.
