Nigerian Satinwood


Recommended Posts

I've just placed an order for some Nigerian Satinwood. There's a good example on the gallery hardwoods link (in the resoarces area. Once I saw this wood, I had to try to work with it.

GalleryHardwoods Search for Satinwood and you'll find it. I just love the way the figure runs like ribbons at a 45 degree angle to the grain. Sweeeeet.

And I got it for 1/5 that price. :D

It's going to be the top for my next project. Any ideas for finishing options? Tobacco burst, Cherry burst?

That's gonna look sweet, what kind of body are you going to put it on?

Not sure yet. The pieces are huge, so I could even veneer a bass body if I wanted. I also will have enough material that I can do both the front and the back. Yummy.

Tempting to try out a Les Paul or a PRS style. Any suggestions?
