Ukulele - Wood from the West

The best wood for ukulele building is not only beautiful but also responsibly sourced. Wood from the West commits to providing luthiers with top quality eco-friendly tonewood. Recovered from logging sites, salvaged from urban settings, rescued from wood chippers, and beyond, we provide instrument-makers access to gorgeous ukulele wood that would have otherwise gone to waste. 

Our selection of ukulele tonewood for sale includes pieces for:

  • Tops, backs, and sides (sold as a set or separately)
  • Necks
  • Fingerboards
  • Soundboards 

With dramatic, high-contrast pieces such as our Myrtle ukulele tonewood sets and more understated yet classic blanks, such as our Port Orford Cedar soundboards, you are bound to find the right ukulele wood for your project amongst our Wood from the West collection. 

Whether you’re searching for a ukulele back, ukulele neck wood, or an entire set, read up in our descriptions of each listing to find the best ukulele wood for your build. We even include suggestions on which types of woods pair well together for the best tone. 

Each wood offers unique characteristics, including tone, color, and contrast. If you’re crafting a show-stopping performance instrument, consider our Redwood concert ukulele soundboards. If you need a Baritone sized set with rich, dark colors, opt for our Walnut ukulele wood sets.   

Wood from the West continually curates a collection of sustainable, domestic tonewood to fuel ukulele artisans’ creativity across the US. If you don’t find what you are looking for in our catalog, contact us. We will help you locate the best ukulele wood for your next build.
