johnsilver Posted March 4, 2007 Report Share Posted March 4, 2007 My father had a plank of wood in his shop for many years. I recall him referring to it as meranti. I looked it up and that seems to be right - dark red meranti with dark red and brown coloration. The wood feels very hard, is very heavy and appears to be brittle. It has open pores. I had to cut off a piece to get it to fit in the trunk of my car - it crosscut fine with a handsaw. The whole plank appears to be quartersawn. The plank is about 4' x 1' x 1". Any one have experience with this wood? I'm thinking about fretboards or neck lamination. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
