Riegel Ahorn


Sycamore is to be found all over Europe but very seldom as Figured Sycamore which occurs most frequently in England. The wood fibres are wavy which gives this species of wood its typical pattern.


This almost white wood yellows under the influence of light and air if the veneers are not dried quickly enough. Heart discoloration is possible but since the logs normally have large diameters this is not such a problem. Worse is the tendency of annual rings to develop green stripe in certain growing areas.


Machining is difficult, mainly because of the figure. A slower rate of feed and sharp tools are indispensable to prevent the surface grain from getting torn. It is very difficult to produce profiles in particular. Surface burns can occur if the feed speed is too slow. /td>

The wood has a great tendency to check and warp. Colour changes can occur if dried improperly.


Figured Sycamore is excellently suited for polishing and staining. Varnishes resistant to UV rays are recommended to prevent premature yellowing.


Joints are easily produced with glue, screws, and nails and are very durable. Pre-drilling is recommended when using screws.

Logs free of defects are used for the production of exclusive veneers. Figured Sycamore veneers are mostly produced for the American and Asian markets as neither the European furniture trade nor the end users of that region accept the figured effect at the moment. Short lengths are sold as so-called “Fiddleback wood“ to musical instruments makers (for string instruments).
