“I just wanted drop you guys a thank you note. I ordered a khaya back/sides set and some brace wood from you folks and had it on my front porch within three days. The wood is beautiful, the price was fair, and your service is most impressive. Thanks!"

Nomex

 

 

Nomex® is a lightweight honeycomb fiber originally developed by Dupont Chemical for the aviation industry. It is being used by innovative luthiers in the creation of "double tops" (also called "hollow tops").

We carry three sizes of Nomex. The NOMEX and NOMEXT have an 1/8" honeycomb and weigh 1.8 pounds per cubic foot. The NOMEXW has a 1/4" honeycomb and weighs 2.0 pounds per cubic foot.

Nomex is available in larger dimensions, call for details.

The two videos, below, by
luthier and instructor Robert O'Brien
demonstrate double top construction.
