Roasted Maple experiences

Recommended Posts

Roasted maple is beyond my experience so far, but I've used roasted alder for a couple of guitars. Roasted birch has been used by some of my course mates. And I've used some roasted pine for other purposes.

Roasted wood is lighter than standard dried wood. Yet it's harder and thus more resistant to dents. It also resists moisture to a degree and won't live with the climate changes.

One main thing to know about roasted wood is that it requires predrilled holes for screws as the wood doesn't give in like 'normal' wood would.
