I bought a desk from Ethan Allen in 2000, at their now long closed Alpharetta Georgia store. It is a cherry desk with a single drawer in the middle.
The veneer top has looked like crap for years now and I decided to have a new tiger maple top made for it as it was an expensive piece of furnature. I started sanding the desk legs and the skirt. I took the top off which is particle board and discovered the only real wood on the desk are the legs and the drawer. everything else is veneered partial board.
So in all about 80% of my cherry desk is partical board.
As a side note it was made in the USA as it is woodburned into side of desk drawer. I can not remember exactly how mush I paid for it, but it was between $800 and $1000.
