My second favorite (after the box). This is truly a work of art. Surely that is veneered?

That’s an amazing desk made from an even more impressive selection of wood!!!! How many bft of koa did it take? I bet it’s solid wood. Anyone who can afford a piece like this, can afford enough wood to build it.

it came from one log that was purchased on the big island for 60,000 then sliced up into veneer so its all book matched and note the top is book and end matched. taylor guitar made a g7 out of some of the veneer and it was bleached snow white

A very nice looking desk. If that is solid Koa, I’ll bet it weighs a ton. I love working with Koa
