Port Orford Cedar Ukulele Soundboard (DR55)
Port Orford Cedar is a beautiful wood for luthiers to use in building acoustic guitars and ukuleles. It has a tone that enhances most any back and sides it is matched with. We recover our Port Orford Cedar on the Southern Oregon Coast. The wood has unmatched qualities, easy workability, and sustained tap tones. It will make high quality acoustic instruments. The area that the trees are removed from are replanted with new trees making this a very eco-friendly and sustainable guitar wood. This sets were recovered from trees left under the surface to support a landing site when the area was logged in the 1920 or 1930. 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 Port Orford Cedar for at least three years.
Port Orford Cedar is a great tone wood for an acoustic guitar or ukulele.
There is one piece 0.17 x 5 1/4 x 14 3/4". Up to Baritone size. (Note: There is bark inclusion.)
