I only wish the burl veneer had been preserved (and yes, I have actually preserved punctured veneer when it's that rare and gorgeous by 'painting' in the correct burl pattern). Did the poster mention the piece was painted before? Was it painted 'wood' in the front that had to be painted over? Otherwise, I think it's a real shame. Burl veneer is expensive and hard to use properly - plus older pieces that are unpainted are hard to find.

So great! And great to see a 'before and after' that didn't involve paint. Paint is for hiding cheap veneer, not beautiful wood! No matter how well done, I assume the person couldn't find good condition wood in the first place.
