snagged some noice curly soft maple...


Recommended Posts

so there's a local place I visit... where I asked them to bring in some curly maple from their sister store in california.  Peterman lumber.  It's S2S curly maple approx 7/8" x 7" x 10' for $25 a board.  Figured it might work good for a slip matched top and if not def for laminated neck stock.  The other board isn't as consistently curly as this one... but pretty nice for the price anyway.  Don't know if they ship and i suspect the shipping would be a killer anyway... but thought I'd mention for those in CA or AZ.  at the very least - perhaps you like to look at wood as much as i do.  wood porn!

That's a pretty good price for no curls at all.

I'm pretty spoiled.  they had a piece of 1 x 12" x 12' of purple heart that had some light/med figure to it.  I believe it's $8/bd ft so probably $100.  they also have teak, bloodwood, bubinga, zebra, etc... for similar prices.  last time I went there they had 8/4 maple that had med birdseye in it.  I passed at the time as I don't see me using 12' of 8" @ 8/4.  Should have snagged it because it would have been $2.95/bd ft.  I need to visit that place more often!
