Selecting and shipping tonewood from a distance can be difficult for luthiers who ideally hand-select wood for their instruments. With years of experience working with luthiers to select and ship tonewood to countries on five continents, we understand these concerns and try to make selection and shipping simple with our online shop.
Grading of tonewood is subjective and tonewood suppliers can use different criteria, so we seek to provide as much information as possible on our online shop. We offer individual pieces with pictures and detailed descriptions such as the grade, production year, price, specific gravity, and interesting features (e.g. bear claw). If you need more specific information about an item, please do not hesitate to contact us.
To ensure the least-cost method of shipping, we have agreements with some of the larger worldwide shipping companies. Our Shipping Calculator will give a full estimate of the door-to-door shipping costs of the contents of your shopping cart.
