Commission something using some never to be seen again timber!
We have some reclaimed Teak worktops in the workshop at the moment. Just waiting for that 1960-70s retro sideboard commission.
Also recently uncovered from the deepest darkest recesses of the woodrack is a quantity of very old mahogany, walnut, and the biggest piece of ebony anyone here has ever heard of. Much of the mahogany has lovely crotch grain figuring, some of the walnut boards are over 600mm wide. These are crying out for a once in a lifetime statement piece!
The ebony is about 2m long and 400mm wide and up to 80mm thick, so big that for a while we thought it must be something else!
