  1. 3 weeks and cannot find a moderator to help me
  2. Hello, I log onto Mn everyday, and it makes me reset my password every time I log in. Can you help? Thank you, Glenn Singing Tree Tonewood
  3. Oh heck, I'll sell ya 4 80-100 year old fiddles to play with for $150 shipped !! Great for practicing repair and set-up.
  4. I am offering this piece for a short time. It would make an awesome 1 pc Cello back, as it measures ; 22 inches wide 50 inches long 3+ inches thick. Has been air drying 10 years. Asking $800 Will entertain a serious offer, but after next Wednesday, I may be sawing it into flat back bass backs. More photos coming. Thank you for your consideration
  5. I think it's beautiful, and has some real history/life written in those repairs. I Look forward to the process and see what you do.
  6. Hi Folks, I am offering high quality Northern Maine Red Spruce now. It is hand split and graded. AA grade is $60 and Master grade is $80. Will send pics of each piece. Better photos coming. Thank you for your consideration
  7. I love it. I used his term "Golden Tone Threads" in the 90's. I had to give him credit. He knew and I know, It IS great tonewood, equal to European tonally, in my humble opinion.
  8. Excellent thread Nathan, thank you for your research. I can say from experience, cutting curly red maple since the 90's, that it is found even in northern Maine. Fortunately, it only seems to occur in 25-30% of figured trees here, so I still find plenty of clear wood. I propose "brown thread" to describe, rather than 'worm track'. Consensus?
  9. My guess would be rustic American scroll and cheap German body. I would say wall hanger, "Art".
  10. r.e. the OP, I still think those 'antiquing marks' are writing, in code. A secret message.
  11. I hear what you are saying. Mind you, that last wedge has not been planed, it is actually very clear with the exception of those fine, vertical threads. Fortunately I get plenty of logs without it, but when I cut in to a well figured mature log and see that, my heart sinks a bit.
  12. Here, for your viewing pleasure, is a wedge from another tree, this one from the Maine/New Hampshire northern border. The tracks/threads are more pronounced. In my experience they don't show as much under varnish and don't affect strength. Nathan, I find your thought here to be a viable alternative to my mineral theory;
  13. I've found that, in my opinion, mineral stain is brown or orange-ish, where fungal stain is grey/green, grey/blue. I want to learn more, and am willing to send pieces of wood with this mineral thread/worm track thing to colleagues interested in studying it and sharing thoughts.
