Well-aged domestic black willow and sycamore for viola, cello, and bass

Recommended Posts

Stock available for linings, blocks, necks, back plates. I am selling at cost on behalf of the property owner - wood came with the property of a deceased Texas maker - and I have exclusive access to what is a substantial supply. Photos are representative. Based on the likelihood the maker was not still collecting wood after he turned 80 (he died at 102), the stuff is at least 20 years old.
Process: contact me at julian@cossmannviolins.com. Do not contact me through this listing as I am rarely on MN any more.  Give me your specs and I will select pieces and send you photos from the site. Once you have committed - this is based on an honor system -, I will transport to Austin (about a 2 1/2 hour drive) and ship from there. Once you have received the shipment, you pay me.
Price equals: owner's price for the wood + my time in making the selection (5-hour driving time and gas not included) + transport and shipping costs. If shipping costs can be saved by some kind of in-person hand-off, I will try to accommodate that, e.g. if we are both attending a workshop, you can meet me half-way between the workshop and your location, you are coming through Austin.
Shipping time subject to Austin's not exceeding Stage 3 of its Covid risk-based assessment for the community (we are headed back to Stage 3 as I write.)
