The side of the new slab cabinet developed a crack in the middle, I repaired it with one of my scrap pieces of Brazilian Rosewood. Brazilian Rosewood can't be harvested, imported or sold any more. It was placed under CITES Treaty protection in the mid-90's. I came across a few slats of it in 1997 (retailers were allowed to sell off their existing stocks). Knowing I would never see it again, I snatched them up and have been doling the scraps out ever since. When ever I think I am completely out, I find another piece of it.
