This July, a particularly unique Quilted Maple was worked up in Karlstadt. The tree has been growing on the US West Coast and lay undetected for many months on the owner´s yard facing the threat of ending up as firewood, when Fritz Kohl´s contact person took notice of it and purchased the log together with the company´s log buyer Michael Martin.

With a length of 10 meters, the log had a volume of 1055 board feet, e.g. around 5.2 cbm. It was graded into three lengths and was then worked up.

Especially the first length came off with a nearly perfect quilt reaching deep into the inside of the log. A pattern comparable to this has not been seen for decades with Quilted Maple, the Fritz Kohl experts stated.

It is true that a distinct coloration of the wood developed due to the long storage, however, this only caters for an even more decorative effect highlighting this Quilted Maple´s uniqueness once again.

The log has been worked up yielding 2,775 m² of veneer with 1,872.00 m² in the first length, 615.19 in the second and 276.22 m² in the third length.

There is a good chance that this special veneer will be used for the interior fitting of a president´s Boeing 747. The parties involved already visited Karlstadt for inspection and negotiation, however, there are still discussions going on whether the log is to be dyed in order to show a consistent color.
A final decision is expected to be made by September 2015.
