Our imported inventory spans over three warehouses and consists of over 80-million square feet of veneer. We have many common species such as Eucalyptus, European Beech and Prima Vera, but we also warehouse several hard-to-find and rare species including Ziricote, Amboyna Burl and Bubinga Pommelle.
Each individual log among the vast inventory is sampled and photographed for quick and easy access. Through our ‘Wood Search Engine’ we can quickly identify several possible options for our customers based on species, grade, length, footage and more. Samples can be sent for client review as well as the ability to showcase an 8″x 12″ finished panel of the material for better reference.

Realtec veneer is real, natural veneer that is embossed with “figure.” The effect produces a flawless resemblance to natural figure, which remains consistent throughout large sequences of veneer.
Most people would agree that “figure” is the most desirable characteristic in wood. Botanists are still not sure about what exactly creates figure in wood, but it is known that figure appears when the density and growth orientation within the grain changes to create a 3-dimensional perception.
The “fiddle-back figure” has remained the most valued figure of all. Logs which have a fiddle-back figure are extremely rare and the most sought after, hence these veneers command the highest prices of all. You can have the most highly regarded figure of all, in continuous supply, at consistent pricing. Due to a lack of availability in fiddle-back veneers, Hokusan Ltd. of Japan developed a patented process to emboss natural plain veneers with fiddle-back figure. M. Bohlke Veneer is the exclusive distributor of this product, called Realtec, in the United States and Canada. We carry an inventory of over 1,000,000 square feet for immediate shipment in a variety of grades and lengths. Thanks to the consistent figure and color, log flitches can be easily matched for large jobs or continuous production.
