Several of us are away at the Somerset Folk Harp Festival, and we may not be able to respond to emails and phone calls as quickly as usual. Thank you for your patience!
The ripples in figured curly maple reflect the light in a fascinating, three-dimensional way. When you order the rails and pinblocks in this gorgeous wood, it makes the whole instrument glow! We also bind the top of the instrument in curly maple, and add additional binding on the back for symmetry. With a natural soundboard, the overall look is rich and warm, but curly maple trim is also commonly paired with a black soundboard for a particularly striking look.
Because wood is a natural material, there are many different ways that curly maple can look, and you can get an idea of some of the variations by browsing through the photos below. If you are ordering this option and have a particular idea about what you like or don't like, please let us know! We would be happy to look at our current stock of wood and discuss the available options with you.
