 European Steamed Beech Plywood Inspection and QC checklist

Beech is typically a pale cream color, sometimes with a pink or brown hue. Veneer tends to be slightly darker colored, as slicing the veneer usually requires the wood to be prepared with steam, which gives the wood a more golden tone. Flatsawn surfaces tend to be very plain, while quartersawn surfaces exhibit a silvery fleck pattern. Beech has a fine to medium texture, with closed pores and an even grain structure. Beech can also exhibit a moderate amount of natural luster/sheen.

European Beech grows in the U.K., Europe, and Western Asia. It contains very little white sapwood with the majority being a pale pinkish heartwood. European Beech is also hard, stiff and brittle with straight and closed grain.
