Camcool, ... firstly, do you even have to means to bookmatch wood? it may be better if you buy a regular top already bookmatched. And it may be even better if its not goncalo alves, because you could end up totoally ruining a beutiful peice of wood on your first build. that **** is really expensive, I doubt you are even serious about buying it.
