Re: polyurethane finish on zebrano wood

How about getting a nice piece of attractive wood and hand carving
replacements for all the interior wood.  In other words, do it with real
wood that will have an chance of surviving ham-handed repair efforts.

Remember my Daddy's advice:  "Don't force it, Son.  Get a bigger hammer."
This strikes me as that sort of suggestion.  :-)
