Mahogany primary, poplar secondary, q.s. white oak, mahogany crotch veneer, fiddle-back maple veneer, big-leaf Western maple burl inlays, scorched maple bellflower inlays, maple stringing, maple purfling, maple and walnut & mahogany banding, holly & ebony stringing. 6+ coats pre-cat sprayed lacquer finish. Special thanks go to Mario Rodriguez and Alan Turner (Picasso & Rembrandt) of the Philadelphia Furniture Workshop and my wife, Linda, for their support, care and tutilage, without which this beautiful piece of furniture would not have been possible.

Exceptional craftsmanship! I love the stringing and other fine details, too.

Amazing work. You added all the “bells and whistles” without making it look overdone at all. Absolutely beautiful!
