I don't know if you're going to like the solid wood dash.  The directional 
stability is quite poor that way.  Warping becomes a problem, as does cracking 
and the popping out or jamming in of gauges.  Cross grained plywood type 
construction eliminates these problems.  It does give you delamination to enjoy 
instead, but if you us the right adhesives, this isn't a problem.

In the near future will be making solid wood dashes here in China a fraction 
of the cost of having it done in the US.
