Tom, we do them both ways. Sometimes to maximize the beauty of the grain; sometimes to maximize material use. With this jet black ebony, the material savings definitely outweighed the negligible visual distinction. Also, tiling looks attractive on its own in many types of wood, and it's easier to install. Your koa arm bevel benefited from the solid piece though. Don't you think?
