John Abbett Posted March 19, 2009 Report Share Posted March 19, 2009 All, I'm looking to build a Firebird, a neckthrough version. I have this nice birch that I reclamed that's been in my shop for years, I got a large pile of it somewhere and had years of age on it. It's great stuff. It finishes up nice. Doesn't have much figure, but for my application it doesn't matter. Is there any problems with this wood? It will be a neck through with black walnut stripe in the middle of two 1 1/8 inch Birch strips with black walnut wings. If you wonder why I don't use maple, the answer is, I have this stuff paid for, I would have to buy Maple. I would like to use what I have if it would work. Any issues with tendancy to warp or anything else? -John Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
