    My dad was a lover of figured woods his entire life. He would visit sawmills in different parts of the world looking for wood for various projects. In the early 70s, while he was in Bogota, Columbia, he bought Brazilian Rosewood and had this table made. Maybe we should cut it up and make a few guitfiddles out of it. Waddaya think? :iamconfused:

    Amazing. How thick is that, seems like one piece bodies could be made from it?

    Proving once again the power of genetics. Who'd have thought a serious wood addiction could be in a guy's DNA?

    Sounds like the table carries no sentimental value...???? That's a pity...
    Beautiful wood!

    Well you probably don't really need both extenders.

    Crackwood trumps sentimentality. So do guitars.

    I'd suggest something like Rick Nielson's custom multi necked Hamer...you could probably fit more than 5 onto this beauty!

    Should you get the inclination to go through with it, here's a video I came across last week of someone that turned their Brazilian Rosewood furniture into a nice acoustic guitar.

    I would have walked right past that little stack of shelves in a thrift store and never realized it was made from Rosewood.
