Maple Stabilized Ukulele Fingerboard (TE17)
Maple is not only a beautiful wood for luthiers to use in building acoustic guitars and ukuleles. We recover our Maple on the Southern Oregon Coast where the variety of soil types can add color to your guitar. The wood has unmatched qualities, easy workability, and sustained tap tones. It will make high quality acoustic instruments. We personally recover most of our trees from logging site where the trees were being sent to chip mills. The areas that the trees are removed from are replanted with new trees making this a very eco-friendly and sustainable guitar wood. The cool wet air of the Oregon Coast makes the perfect environment for slow consistent growth of acoustic instrument quality wood. We air dry our Maple wood for at least three years.
We stabilize our Maple through a slow process where resin is injected under a vacuum. This process also allows us to add dyes to color our fingerboards.
This piece showcases excellent figure, color and contrast.
There is one piece 0.25 x 2 x 14 1/4"
Our photos are taken two ways. The first to show what the finished instrument will look like and dry to show what the wood will look like when it arrives.
