Straight out of the box, a couple quick images of an incredible Indonesian flamed ebony set. The base color is a rich reddish brown covered by a very dense network of ink lines. I’ll repost after it acclimatizes and I plane off the protective lacquer which covers it entirely. I smoothed and wiped some shellac on a back area and it is absolutely stunning. The third photo shows the sides detail, natural color no shellac. Strikingly and strangely similar to the finest Ziricote.
