Nahh, the Prestige CAN be made out of solid wood.... but the above photo is a MIXED wood ("Wizard Wood") which is a mix of acrylic and wood fused together. Essentially a piece of "punky" wood, or knotted up wood, is placed it in a container coupled with acrylic and pressure is applied. The acrylic is injected into the pores of the wood, and fusses to the wood, filling up gaps and crevices etc etc. It actually converts a block of wood, that has no value due to the fact it has deteriorated over time and exposure, into a beautiful block of wood.
Basically anything that is solid, and is softer than steel we can build into a CIEM.
So a solid block of acrylic, wood, carbon glass or a mixture of those elements we can make a Prestige with.
