Each log in our inventory is sampled for quick and easy reference. Through our Wood Search Engine, we quickly identify options for you. We search by species, grade, length, footage and more. Next, we select and share samples with you. In addition to our sampling process, we have the ability to show an 8 x 12″ finished panel of the material. Because of our streamlined process, you can be sure you are ordering exactly what you need. Visit our Map of Origins Index to see where the wood for your next project was responsibly harvested.

Natural wood with embossed figure 

Realtec is natural wood that is embossed with “figure.” The process creates a flawless resemblance to natural figure—and the figure remains consistent throughout large sequences. Most agree that figure is ‘the’ desirable characteristic in wood. Interestingly, we’re still not sure how it is created. It is known that figure appears when the density and growth orientation within the grain changes to create a 3D perception.

Most desired figure

The fiddleback figure remains the most valued figure of all. Logs that have fiddleback are extremely rare. With Realtec, you can have this figure in continuous supply and at consistent pricing. Due to a lack of availability in fiddleback veneers, a patented process was developed to emboss natural plain woods with fiddleback figure.


M. Bohlke Corp. is the only distributor of Realtec in the United States and Canada. With an inventory of over one million square feet, we have various grades and lengths available for purchase. Thanks to the consistent figure and color, log flitches are easily matched for large jobs or continuous production.
