Featuring Fantastic Fiddleback!

Ash Set 722
Red Maple Set 081

This amazing ash set contains fiddleback as fine as you'll see anywhere! The possibilities are limitless, the figure is fantastic.

The curly pattern referred to as "fiddleback" got its name when it was originally sought out for creating the back of violins. It is still highly regarded for its application in the world of stringed instruments, but it goes on from there.... table tops, furniture, anything wanting a "wow" factor. .

The figure in this virtually clear, quartersawn set is tight, tight, TIGHT from edge to edge and end to end. The undulating waves in the wood bounce and reflect light in true fiddleback fashion, causing a shimmer effect as the piece is viewed from different angles. It almost feels alive. Great depth. Considering the widths of this wood, topping out at 14.5 inches, the consistancy of the fiddleback figure across the entire board is a special, rare treasure.

And ..... as for this sweet set of fiddleback Red Maple, the figure is a bit more loose, but still impressive! The curl is pretty darn consistant throughout, all pieces were square edged after kilning resulting in nice parallel lines. This set has been surfaced to a full 2 inch thickness. It is virtually clear lumber and almost all nice sapwood. A great little set with uniform color and fiddleback.
