  • Ilex aquilifolium - HOLLY
    Hard, heavy and white as can be, holly is apt for use in many instrument parts, often decorative, yet also protective and hard-wearing. Commercially available as guitar bindings, dyed and used as fingerboard material, known to be blown too.

  • Malus domestica - APPLE
    The small quantities of wood from apple are valued by woodwind makers and, as with many smaller, orchard trees, produce hard timber, apt for smaller, harder-wearing instrument parts. Fruit production favours this tree ever smaller, to ease harvests.

  • No unread posts Juglans regia - EUROPEAN WALNUT

Most common in plucked string bodies and keyboard casework.

  • Juglans nigra - BLACK WALNUT
    Strong and even grained, the walnuts are kind to curves, tools and makers. Straighter, larger and longer than its European cousin (J. regia), American black walnut is found wherever a larger expanse of stable attractive timber is required - plucked string bodies, keyboard casework and harps.
