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.
