Here's the stablemate of the kou concert posted yesterday. Both are genus cordia but they do look a little different. This one is also 16". The top is Western red cedar with extremely tight grain and silking that indicates that it is nearly perfectly quarter sawn.

Wow, that is beautiful. Is this spoken for or is it being offered for sale?

Thanks for asking but it was built to order. The owner is a visual artist whose input was a big part of the success of the project.

Incredible work there, Salty. Simple, clean lines, elegant. The back and sides are gorgeous too. Love it!

Really striking, just gorgeous. Excellent build as always David, is that the pore fill finish you are now offering?

Thanks, Dave! No, it's not filled. It's quite a few coats of Tru-Oil applied in a way that levels well to a high gloss.

That zircote is gorgeous. No wonder they call it landscape figuring.

Ziricote is such a beautiful tonewood.
