This piece displays two of natur’s most beautiful woods.  The back is book matched Quilted Maple which if found in the Pacific Northwest and Canada.  One of the things that make this wood so prized is that it looks almost three dimensional when you view it in a bright light.  Cocobolo is sometimes called Cocobolo Rosewood because it is a beautiful member of the Rosewood family.  This fascinating wood is found in Central and South America.  It is fascinating because it varies in color from black to orange to red to purple and others.  The word that “pops” into my mind each time that I see it is the word “REGAL”.  This is truly a regal and functional art piece.
