“Dear Sir,
A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with Sitka top.
I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce.
The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirely by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a drill press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them.
It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career.
Many Thanks.
ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”

Fiber Veneer Sheets


Fiber purflings have been in favor for many years now because they create cleaner, brighter looking trim lines than regular wood. Now, for those who want to use fiber in their own purfling lay-ups (or for headstock veneers and other purposes), we offer black and white veneer sheets in an assortment of useful sizes. Fiber is a cellulose product that finishes well and is flexible, so there is no need to use heat for bending and no danger of it cracking or splitting while you are working with it.  If you need to remove material use a scraper.

NOTE: We do not recommend using fiber veneer for binding, as it doesn’t sand well.
