Howard Hale’s Woodmagic Studio made the finest wooden products available of the day, period. The company has long been out of business and I suspect it is because the time and expense it took to make the high quality products he produced made it very difficult to sell them for a profit (the Okito Syndrome). There is no product line very produced that I have been more impressed with.
The Checker X effect has never looked so good. Made with the following woods: African Zebrawood, South American Purple Heart, Australian Lacewood and American high-figured BIrd’s Eye Maple. It comes with its own stand and protective carry bag. If you want the finest, here it is. Excellent condition.
