  3. Longer lengths can be shipped truck freight instead; Please contact us to get a custom shipping quote if you need lengths longer than 8'

The actual footage you're going to receive is most likely going to change slightly from what you order. This is because we'll be hand selecting your lumber from inventory of various widths and lengths. Usually the change is just a small percentage.

Nice stock, but not best for 3D CNC
Review by  Scott from Denver
Order was prepared precisely to my specifications, packed very well, and arrived timely without damage. The stock was 95% clear throughout, and I had no trouble avoiding the imperfections. I use a CNC machine to 3D carve solid bodies (eg, models), and this was the first time using this species. Probably not best for this purpose. 1. It is a bit fibrous, clogging up the router vacuum. 2. It leaves a furry finished surface in some grain bands.

Basswood
Review by  Vic from Arizona
Delivered as described and as promised. A quality piece of wood. In future however I would opt for a slightly harder species with more pronounced grain. Easy to work with though.

Basswood for guitar body
Review by  Anonymous 
I asked for a blemish free, 8/4 chunk of Basswood for a guitar body, and that's what I got. Dare I say, it was perfect. There was a slight delay in receiving the shipment because of the unusual parameters I requested, but Michael personally called me to discuss accommodating my requests. The wait was well worth it, and the customer service is unparalleled. Great company.
