Bark & Rock

Eucalyptus Smoked Pommele

Where: Australia and New Zealand

Botanical name: Eucalyptus globulus

The term ‘pommele’ originates from the French word for apple (pomme) and is used to describe this veneer’s markings. These look like tiny apples or fruit, scattered across the surface. Depending on natural variations they can also be described as quilted. This painterly finish is further enhanced when the wood is smoked with ammonia, which reacts with the natural tannin present in the logs. This chemical process intensifies the veneer’s natural colours and fine figuring.

Eucalyptus trees are native to Australia and New Zealand where they thrive in the hot climate. They are known for the distinctive aroma of their leaves as well as their variegated bark and wood which often exhibits strikingly sculptural shapes. Eucalyptus trees can reach impressive heights sometimes measuring over 60 metres.

Please note: since wood is a natural product, your Bark & Rock notebook truly is unique and is likely to differ in both pattern and shade from the photographs on our website. These are designed to be indicative of a given type of wood in general.
