I bought a flitch of Timborana many years ago and it finally made it’s way into a project. I have never seen a piece made from this rare wood and loved the way the color went with the Macassar Ebony. It is quite figured and has an intense orange glow. Reminds me a bit of Satinwood but orange/gold instead of yellow/gold. The piece holds a TV along with some equipment. The doors are retractable on a rack and pinion style hardware.

Holy Moly! That’s what you call a money’s no object piece! I’m looking at the bookmatching on the side; you must have one big bandsaw. It’s truly spectacular.

Well, there’s one entertainment center that won’t be tossed out on the curb in ten years like the disposable veneered MDF pieces. Woof.
