I don't think I have any other wooden computers yet. The seller had an 
interesting tale about the origin of the wood in these particular computers. As 
the legend goes, the father of one of the principals of Processor Technology 
had a contract to remove wharfs from along the Mississippi river, which 
happened to be made of black walnut. And thus, the SOL-20 received stylish 
black walnut side panels, hopefully without too much lingering wharf smell. I 
don't know if the tale is true, but I have chosen to believe it.
