August 2019 WOM | Red Gum is native to North America. Red Gum grows from Connecticut and New York, west to Ohio, Illinois, Missouri and Oklahoma south to Florida and Texas. The wood veneer has a silky luster and fine, uniform texture.

After being cut, Red Gum veneer enters a vacuum chamber for the fuming process. The wood veneer is exposed naturally to ammonia, causing changes to its original color. Fumed Red Gum is darker than natural Red Gum. In addition to being darker, the fumed veneer has high contrast. It also has a wide array of colors, ranging from light browns to various shades of red, with darker streaks throughout.
