not even Rich Harris knows LOL but he states in his email along the lines of 'whatever it is, it doesn't seem to wear or pick up dirt'

More specifically, "I'd like to think it's wood, but I've never seen one stained or dirty like you'd see maple stain, so I really don't know."

It's died pink, still looks like wood grain to me although I didn't take a loupe to it.

Could it be Padouk Stained Ash Veneer?

Re: Vine inlay problem

I've still never seen one [that I remember] but if you have that would support the theory it is wood

Re: Vine inlay problem

On the VBK, it looks like wood and feels like wood!...
But I'm no wood expert.

Looks like 2 Parallel strips of veneer glued together in the vine slot:
