Raw wood can be fragile. It requires capability and refined skills in its treatment. Our craftsmen have the expertise to make the most out of every single veneer, from the rarest briar to the widespread teak.

Every single design, from the very first step, deserves the closest attention to detail.
Simply put, quality veneering is a repetition of passages that will make the wood, which is sliced in thin plies, adhere to the surface and possess a lacquered finish that protects it and makes it shine. What is not simple is the expertise that DTales puts into every single one of these passages.

Natural wood

The varieties of wood available for processing are called “essences”, a term not to be confused with the equivalent used for describing perfumes. In this case, the word “essence” is not directly related to the smell, although of course the wood is still fragrant.

Instead, it serves to distinguish the peculiarities of each type of wood, which is radically different from plant to plant, both in physical characteristics and in appearance.

The most marked natural woods

This is just a selection of our extensive library.


One of the hardest and most precious woods in the world, Ebony comes from tropical tree species, with a very particular variegated color of sapwood and heartwood that fades from intense black to pale pink.


The Oak essence often has a non-homogeneous yellow-brown color, a coarse texture, characterized by a wide and flame-striped grain, not always regular. It is a relatively knot-free wood whose quality varies according to the place of origin.


Dark brown, frequently with figuring. American Walnut is unique for “bird pecks”, fingernail size knots which occur in the veneer as stain streaks with a small in the middle.


Wengè is characterized by a deep brown color with variations that are almost black, with a medium to coarse texture. This wood generally has a straight grain and a rather modest amount of innervation.


Maple is an essence with naturally light almost uniform shades, ranging from light brown to pinkish white that give it its own luster, tending to satin. Wood characterized by medium hardness, nervousness and shrinkage has a flamed grain with straight grooves occasionally close and wavy.

Exotic wood

DTales Expertises

The preciousness of a wood is linked to its availability, which only mother nature is able to define.

Dtales aims to offer its customers original and refined solutions by drawing on a selection of wood species from the most remote corners of the world.

What makes a veneer unique


The Burls are outgrowths that are not necessarily situated close to the roots, as usually believed. They are the gift of nature par excellence. They exhibit an irregular and energetic development of wood fibers in spiraling formations and circular “eyes” called “burl eyes”. The burl can present itself across different wood species, ex Walnut or Ash.


The term Figured describes overlapping stripes generated inside the trunk collapsing under its own weight.


With the term Pomelé, pomme (apple) we indicate a pommelé effect with circular and soft volutes along all the trunk of the tree.

Bird’s Eye

The wood species that best displays these natural formations is the American Maple, also known as Bird’s Eye Maple. The formations of these “eyes” are a natural phenomenon caused by the marks left by drops of frozen sap during the harsh North-American winters, year after year.

Engineered wood

A young company with bold vision rooted in history and luxury, DTales was founded in 2013.

Located in the heart of Brianza’s cabinet-making district, but we operate worldwide reaching our customers wherever they may be and working on-site thanks to our indipendence in term of logistics.
