Title: Great Tone Wood Supplier
Post by konacat on Apr 16th, 2010 at 9:03pm
I wanted to let the members here know about a great place to buy instrument wood. It would be RC Tonewoods located in New York. The shop is a family operation that is headed by Bob Cefalu and 3 other family members. They are a sponser on the Officail Luthiers Forum (OLF) and the members continue to rave about would they have purchased. I have been very satisfied with my past purchases and just made a couple of larger purchases. The reason I'm mentioning RC Tonewoods again is that they have now started posting products for ukuleles again. They have much more wood then you see so please email or call if you don't see what you want. They are very frendly and reliable. I would never recommend anyone or any place on the forum unless I had complete confidence.

Bob has listed some more ukulele sets you might want to take a look at. Bob has Cuban Mahogany ukulele sets. Too bad I have spent so much money lately. There are curly maple sets for only $20.00 and Port Orford Cedar tops for $15.00.

The quality of my workmanship keeps me working on "seconds" or "lumber-yard" tonewoods.
RC tonewoods don't export unfortunately and the new CITES regulations can be a real pain.
