    No biggie. A maple veneer top is simple a maple (usually flamed or quilted) that is a very thing slice of wood, usually less than 1/8th of an inch. A "full" top is usually about a 1/4 inch thick, so a veneer is just a thin, thin slick of wood on the top for cosmetis. Not to be confused with fake "Photo Flame " (Or "Foto Flame") which is different.
