  • Some information about the rare woods utilized in this build, from the luthier, Sheldon Schwartz:  The Bird's Eye Maple is from a southern Ontario
    tree that was felled in the mid 1860's, cut into boards, put in a barn
    and forgotten about.  The boards were covered with a thick black coating
    of grunge when I got them. The Cedar top is from billets that were
    stored in a barn in British Columbia for 20 years.  I just happened to
    be at the lumber yard on the day the truck carrying them arrived.  That
    was sometime in the early 90's.
