Photomicrograph Consistent with Beech

Transmitted light (light source behind the specimen) photomicrograph of plywood from the Horten Ho 229 V3. The wide ray structure, particularly clear on the left side of the image, far exceeds the four-cell width of Common Birch and is more consistent with European Beech.
