        Wood | Raw to Ready: Bentley

        This clip from Raw to Ready: Bentley focuses on how the ancient Egyptians began a process called wood veneering. Their love for ebony inspired them to use less of the precious wood by simply covering finished pieces. In Louis XIV's France, veneer-decorated furniture was a high art. Wood burr was the preferred wood of the time. Today it is root burr that is the most coveted and is used to line the interior of Bentley automobiles.
