Are there ever any chunks of heartwood similar to brazilian rosewood, such as walnut, where the heartwood is lighter than the rest, big enough to make a bass out of, like a thunderbird? I want the yellow part to come right up through the middle like on acoustics like this:


I didn't think it was possible, but I saw some cabinets made like that this weekend that were supposedly some kind of walnut. Here is some wood for a ukelele like I want, I just want it one solid chunk, but I might have to laminate it, use boards like this on the outside.
