167 pieces of handcut veneer. Thin mahogany rays separating quilted maple rays. The "toe" and ring highlight are maple burl. The base is mahogany.
The inspiration for Flightline is the Wright Brothers Memorial at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina
The design is a classic Art Deco sunburst with additional wing/feather decorative elements.
