Additional Information: The 600 Year Old Oak was growing before Christopher Columbus arrived in America and came from a storm-damaged tree near Sacramento California. The tree was locally famous and I read a newspaper article in the Sacramento Bee that described the tree and its demise. This wood has lots of character including nice looking figure, contrasting colors, and spalt that creates a black line in the wood. 

Honduras Rosewood is a very hard and heavy wood with multi red and brown colors. Honduras Rosewood has a distinctive rose fragrance. This wood has been sought after hundreds of years ago from furniture and musical instrument makers. Honduras Rosewood sometimes produces a burl in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and makes small birdseye knots. This burl wood is highly figured and is sliced into veneers and thus accounts for much of its rarity and price. The Honduras Rosewood Burl that I use has been sustainably harvested. This piece of burl has lots of figure and provides a nice contrast to the 600 Year Old Oak.
