Frogwood® Quality and Colors

Frogwood® is made using peeled white birch veneer, dyed and bonded using heat and pressure to make a natural wood material with superior strength and density. We use exclusively Grade 'A' and 'B' material; there may be small knots less than a quarter of an inch in diameter, and the material may contain some amount of heartwood as well as sap wood.

Heartwood and sap wood, and the naturally denser grain from annual growth cycles throughout any hardwood absorb dyes at different rates, so naturally there will be variations in saturation of the color throughout the piece as well as from blank to blank, there may be some sections where the dye barely penetrates, giving small unexpected bursts of natural color within the piece. This enhances the inherent patterns of dark and light shades within the wood.

FrogBlanks maintains tight control over dye colors in manufacturing, and do maintain specific shades of colors for all dyed material, but realistically we're not making plastic; wood does what wood wants to do, which is why it is fascinating to work with - every product made with a natural material is unique.

Frogwood® Laminate Colors

These are the base colors available for Frogwood; any combination of these colors can be mixed to create your own custom layups. Custom color orders have a two panel minimum, and a lead time of four to five weeks plus shipping time.

Below the solid color images, you will find our standard color sets.

To truly appreciate the colors in a Frogwood blank you have to machine it, revealing the darker surface colors and the transition to the lighter core colors of every layer of the block. This section gives you an idea of the saturated surface colors of each lamination, and the cut pieces photographed in our Frogwood Blanks product pages show you how those colors come to life in your finished product.
