Maple burl veneer
I used it to add some visual interest to some of the trim on the Bookcase I am building for my daughter. The attached picture is just of the facing trim piece with the veneer installed. Once the Bookcase is complete the veneered piece will show 1/4" of the dark stained maple above and below the veneer. The piece will be installed horizontally at the top of the bookcase just below the top, with a 3/4" cove molding just above the veneer.

Woodworking Experience:
First time
This is the first time I've tried to enhance two doors on a buffet with veneer. Slowly I'm learning the process on how to work with the wavy burl that has holes in dark areas which I assume were small knots?. Veneer Tamer sprayed on burl does weird things to burl, it might be good for straight grain veneer but not burl, at least on maple burl.

Beautiful burl veneer
Beautiful veneer and would rate a 5, however this veneers is a little brittle and has a fair amount of rippling & bubbling which is typical of Crotch and Stump veneer but is not mentioned in description.

You will need to flatten this veneer before you work with it (cutting, seaming and using it in a vacuum press). It is much to brittle and rippled to work with in the state you receive it in.
Water alone will not work, it will have a small and short-lived effect on a veneer's flexibility. It will not condition the wood cells which is critical to getting the veneer flat without splitting. Additionally, if the water dries too fast, the veneer sheet can crack severely.

Use a quality veneer softener that temporarily plasticizes the wood cells, flattens and makes the veneer flexible.
Keep in mind that Mahogany Crotch and Maple Burl are tedious to flatten.

This veneer is probably not a good choice for beginners.
