No worries. Sycamore is all over the place, although not a lot of timber dealers carry it.
But more importantly: where the hell did you get Prima Vera? I thought that species was, like Satinwood, unobtanium!
We were asked to reproduce a cased opening in Prima Vera for the Hutzler Mansion some thirty years ago, and because we couldn’t find Prima Vera anywhere, at any price, we had to use Satinwood. The material alone came to $1200 in 1987 dollars.
Satinwood and Prima Vera have almost idential grain patterns, but the former is a golden color and the latter sort of a salmon color. The client, a remarkable and brave woman, took the elaborate casing we made and stained it herself to match the Prima Vera in her dining room.
The mansion was built as a show house for the builder; every room was a different wood. A Cherry library, a Walnut drawing-room, a quartered White Oak grand foyer and staircase, a quartered Sycamore bedroom, a curly Maple bedroom, a Cuban Mahogany bedroom, and of course the Prima Vera dining room. And more I’ve forgotten.
The structure had been abused, but within ten years she had it back to showroom condition.
