Honduran Mahogany bracewood, 1st grade

$13.70

Bracewood is becoming harder to get as wood, in general, becomes scarcer. Quartersawn wood is directed at necks, backs, and tops. Mills are attempting to get the highest yields possible from their material meaning that there is less fall down from which to create bracewood. As a result, the quality of bracewood suffers – it won’t be quartersawn and often the grain will run "corner to corner"  In addition, the grain may not be straight the full length of the piece, there may be small defects and the grain could be wider than one is accustomed to. This is an industry-wide phenomenon and is outside of our control.

Product Description

Unless otherwise noted, each bracewood unit is equivalent to 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 20", though the actual dimensions of the pieces you get may vary. On rare occasions, 2 units may be delivered in one double-size blank.

LMI strives to obtain the best brace stock available. You can save money by buying 2nd-grade material and working around the defects. Bracewood might be downgraded for any one or more of the following reasons: small knots, wide grain, slightly off quarter, pitch pockets. When buying 2nd-grade, consider purchasing one extra piece so there is no danger of running short due to working around defects.
