Maple bowl blank 118 is a nice size quilt blank with pleasant figure. Strong figure on one side, while appearing to fade before reaching the face of the opposite side. The stock is 5-7 years old and came from extremely high quality guitar wood. As such, there are always billets that don’t quite make the top tier standards of the luthiers producing the guitars. A fortunate part of this business is that high quality wood can still be made available for unntented purposes. This is a solid section of a 3″ billet we surfaced it down to 2.5″ thickness. Maple bowl blank 118 is now just awaiting the individual with ambition, creativity and skill to make it into something incredible.

Our Process

Our unique way of pressure cooking and kiln drying the wood allows for the least amount of volumetric shrinkage and maximum natural stability of each piece. This proprietary process was developed over 40+ years; many of which was through simple trial and error. Today, through our process using specific temperatures, psi and durations of time, we consistently produce some of the straightest, internally sound and beautiful burl and figured hardwood blanks on the market. Our large manufacturing customers truly depend on this consistency for their pool cue, guitar or knife blanks. Try one of our products and see how we compare to others.
