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!
Dustin

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.
