Testimonials

Just wanted to say that the quality of all the products LMI has sent me is awesome!

I was shocked at the outstanding quality of the wood sent with my kit. All the wood in my kit is stunning! I can't wait to work on this project.  The quality of the services is top notch and the tools I bought from LMI are top grade.

I am glad LMI sets a high standard in quality all around. I look forward to this project and many more knowing that a place like LMI exists with these standards.

I work in a manufacturing environment so I know the work it takes to keep such a high standard. I know LMI couldn't do it without having good people doing the daily grind. Please let your co-workers and shop staff know that I said thanks for the work they do.

I hope LMI continues this tradition of high quality, it can be hard to find a place that values a high standard.

Great job
and thanks!

Port Orford Cedar Neck Blanks

NECKSPortOrfordWNPOC700Often used for acoustic guitar soundboards, Port Orford Cedar is gaining in popularity as a neck wood. It is similar in appearance and scent to Alaskan Yellow Cedar, but is stiffer and lighter. Indeed, it is highly sought after for the bold, robust, responsive tone that it imparts on an instrument soundboard. It is very even textured, with a slight golden-white color and tight, even grain.

What Les Stansell says about this wood:
     "It is the ultimate "structural grade" wood and has the highest strength to weight ratio of all wood species. It is among the toughest and most elastic of softwoods and due to its fibrous interlocking grain structure it is extremely resistant to splitting and is very dimensionally stable.
     When compared to traditional neck woods, PO Cedar rivals both the lightness of Spanish Cedar and the stiffness of Honduras Mahogany… and with its very small, almost microscopic pores it finishes out like glass (with no pre-filling) to a look of aged ivory. Can you tell that I am crazy about Port Orford Cedar?"
