Testimonials

“I'm doing some wood binding today, and I pulled out a few pieces of curly maple I've had for a while that I bought from you. It never ceases to amaze me how LMI, above all my other suppliers, just consistently gives me materials that never fail to surpass my expectations. No matter what any picture on your site looks like, whatever I get is always better. Really appreciate it. I know that you supply many other people far beyond my volume and talent, but I am definitely a customer for life!"

Birdseye Maple Fingerboards

FINGERBOARDSTemperedBirdseyeFBBEEL500
Tempered birdseye Maple

Good Birdseye Maple is hard to come by, but we have been getting some really excellent boards lately -some with subtle quilt like figure in addition to the Birdseye figure (ask about availability). Far more stable than flamed Maple, these are the only way to go if you want to dress up a Fender style electric.

“Tempered”, “Roasted”, “baked” or 'cooked' woods are exposed to temperatures of 350° to 425° Fahrenheit (about 180°-220° Celsius). They are "cooked" in a vacuum chamber so that there is no flame or burning. The process is called 'torrefaction'. There are number of positive results with tempered wood including a darker color, greater stability, feel, and tone.

NOTE: Unfortunately we are unable to radius Birdseye Maple fingerboards. We use a shaper/molder type tool to radius our boards and the grain of Birdseye Maple tears out when attempting to radius it. Our radius blocks , SRP1620 or SRP1012, work well for this task.
