Birch is a heavy wood with a very fine grain, and is considered one of the most widely used woods for veneer and ply. Very light in color, it takes stain very well, allowing you to truly customize your shells.
Birdseye Maple is not a distinct species of Maple, but is instead named for its growth/grain anomaly. Known for its rare, decorative properties, Birdseye Maple is a wonderful option for a truly unique shell aesthetic. Colors can range from creamy, light amber to deep, reddish and dark brown hues. Our Maple is hand-selected and rotary cut to our desired thickness from the forests of Michigan.
Our Bubinga is ethically sourced from sustainable farms in Africa. Bubinga is valued because of its strength-to-weight ratio and beautiful, decorative detail. A pure Bubinga shell like our Signature Series is a great option, or Bubinga can be used in concert with other hardwoods as a custom order.
Cherry offers beautiful colors, from rich red to creamy white. The wood has a fine, uniform grain and a satiny texture. Our Cherry is hand-selected and rotary cut to our desired thickness from the forests of Michigan.
Curly Maple's defining characteristic is the unusual, curly design of its grain. Intriguing, three-dimensional patterns give the appearance that the grain is curling along the ply. This makes a showstopping shell due to its unique aesthetic. Our Maple is hand-selected and rotary cut to our desired thickness from the forests of Michigan.
Mahogany is a reddish-brown wood with a beautiful, consistent grain, and for this reason is often used as the outer plys in shells. The wood is durable and easy to work with due to its close, straight-grain pattern and lack of soft grain.
Just like our Bubinga, our Waterfall Bubinga is ethically sourced from sustainable farms in Africa. The Watefall Bubinga ups the aesthetic ante with its unique wave pattern, and therefore makes a showstopping shell or complete kit.
