Maple Flame Billet, 2-1/4" x 8" x 22"

Item #152788


Product Information:

Flame Maple, also known as curly maple, tiger stripe or fiddleback, is a feature of maple in which the growth of the wood fiber is distorted in an undulating pattern, producing wavy lines known as flame. These special pieces of wood are frequently used in the manufacture of musical instruments. Our billets come from one of the leading suppliers of music grade wood to luthiers around the globe. These billets, while excellent examples of figured maple, have a minor defect—either a discoloration or minor pin knot—that does not allow them to be graded instrument quality.

  • Billet sizes range from 7" – 11"wide, 22-28" long and 9/4 – 10/4 thick

  • S2S

  • Kiln dried

  • Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.

    Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.
