Satinwood pillars are very rare to find and when we do they are usually in poor shape and a mis-matched pair at best. So finding four in good shape is indeed unusual. Satinwood is a very scarce and expensive wood and most often used as a veneer in the interiors of high end yachts. These are the solid trunks of whole trees resulting in the pillars having different and strong grain patterns with the wood showing various golden hues (see detailed images). The pillars were hand shaped, not turned on a lathe and have a slight ‘entasis’, a double taper with the middle being the thickest. The capitals (tops) are of a turned teak wood in the western traditional style and are also old. However, the very top crowns are recently added using vintage teak to match the rest. This was done to even out the pillars and extend their total heights to 94″. They have been recently sanded and finished with a hard varnish to bring out the color and beauty of the wood.
