“Just stumbled upon your website, after beginning a search to start a long-held desire to build an instrument, and all I can say is, "WOW'!!!! What an absolute treasure trove of delights, information, goodies! I look forward to ordering the fruits of a trawl through your extensive, if not mind-blowing array of products! WOW!"

Sanding & Joining

 

TOPS: joined and sanded
We join and sand all our tops with 120 grit sandpaper to .110"(2.8mm), except Western Redcedar & Redwood which we sand to : 0.115" (2.9mm) Custom thicknesses are available, please ask.

 

BACKS: joined and sanded, sides sanded
Backs can also be joined and sanded to thickness. You can then route a groove on the centerline and inlay a backstrip. We can include one of our backstrips in the joint if you desire (use product code SVBI). Though many believe the best method is to inlay the backstrip in the center, we are only set-up to ‘sandwich’ it between the plates when we join them. Backs can be sanded unjoined as well if you prefer to join. Sides can be sanded to bending thickness. Sanding thickness: joined back 0.095", unjoined back halves 0.100", sides bending thickness 0.090".

We are unable to insert the following backstrips: BI6B, BI20B

*Thicknesses may vary 5%.
Allow 3 or 4 days for sanding services, and 1 week for joining and sanding or backstrip installation.
