Schrunk chose etimoe, sometimes called African rosewood, as the primary veneer for this table because of its luster and variegated color. “I am very interested in luster (chatoyance) and arranging the etimoe segments with the grain at essentially 90° from the adjacent pieces gives a significant brightness change. It changes as one walks past, or around, the piece. Using a dark veneer for the perimeter causes the eye to go directly to the inner segments.” This table won the award for Best Detail.
Etimoe, maple burl, and macassar ebony, 28 dia. x 24h
