    I know this is a old thread, but it seemed like a good continuation. What would you do with this? It's 10 feet long. Solid old growth brw.

    Dear God! I’m worried the first answer that comes to mind would get me banned from this forum...

    Find a carpenter who could safely cut out the door panels, leaving as much of the carving as possible, then replace them with glass to convert it into a guitar display case. Then see how many acoustic guitar backs and sides can be made from the panels.

    Sure. I have a broken foot, so it's hard for me to maneuver around. I'll grad them and take some pics after a bit.

    So I assume I'm not the only one here that actually drags my wife into antique stores looking for stuff just like this!!! Great table top, BTW!!!!

    She helps feed the need by pointing out any turned wood bowls she sees...I have a small collection of turned bowls I use to store small screws, picks, slides, etc...in the dungeon.

    I'm always on the look out for rosewood antiques. It's somewhat of an obsession. Most furniture that utilized rosewood was veneer. So when you find something solid it's a real find. Here is my table from the 1850's that is solid brw.
