  1. There is still some wood available. Jeff, send me a private message and we can discuss how to proceed.
  2. Cincinnati, Ohio. I'm happy to ship.
  3. Hello makers, The time has come for me to thin my herd a little. I have for sale some very fine red maple cut between 1993 and 2003. The photo shows a pretty good representation of what I have. There is more. In some cases I have more pieces from the same tree. Most of the maple is top grade stuff. I do have a few more economical pieces if anyone is interested. In most cases I have matching ribs and scroll blocks as well. I have some engelman spruce available also. Several violin and viola, and 2 cello. top grade violin/viola maple sets: $150 second grade violin/viola maple sets: $85 violin/viola spruce: $50-$85 cello tops: $150/$400 Please pm me with requests for more pictures or info. thanks, Damon Gray p.s. Shop cat not for sale
  4. Interesting. I'm getting ready to varnish a cello top as we speak. I don't think I can wait until next week to start, but maybe I will. See you there Joe. Damon
  5. One more for those having trouble viewing through email.
  6. No sweat Ernie. Anyone else interested, PM me or email and we'll go from there. dg
  7. Ernie, here's one more. Tom, that slab is spoken for as of now. I have another similar one though.
  8. Here are 2 more. Ribs and neck are also red maple and I'll do my best to match.
  9. Ernie, No offense taken. As is the case with most American maple, the grain is not particularly tight, but it is straight . The flame is fairly broad and consistent on most pieces. I'll get a photo of a piece up soon.
  10. I never liked using it, but the idea of the "broom" sound more interesting. I'll have to go hiking soon and pick some up again.
  11. That's cool that you're keeping track of how many reps it takes you to fit a bass bar. Do find 5 cleats are necessary? I've never used more than 3. Does that speed up your process too?
  12. A basic knowledge of violin making would be helpful. Perhaps spend some time on this forum looking into that.
  13. I guess I can't load an avatar either. At any rate, I will go a postin' now so I can get full status. Let me know if you're interested in any of this wood. I'll be in the pegbox.
  14. That would explain why I couldn't figure out how to send a message here. Feel free to email me at
