I built this piece as a comment on life’s surprises and subsequent explosions. As if to confirm that supposition, this piece ended up not in New York or L.A., but in Omaha. The wild, swirling grain of the bubinga veneer is a result not only of naturally occurring figure, but also of the way it is peeled off the log, which distorts the grain; this veneer is sometimes called kewezinga.
