Great blanks!

By

Verified Buyer


Yeah, they're a bit pricey, but I ordered three, and all of them were two-piece, uniform grain/color and the joinery was AIR TIGHT!!! Great product!

Alder isn't a pricey wood, but you pay for the quality milling. My harbor freight jointer took a dive on me, and I can't make my own blanks until my new 8" Grizzly gets in. These showed up square, dead-flat, and ready to mount on my CNC for milling!

Wow!

I just received my alder blank today. It's the most beautiful single piece of alder I've ever seen. Yep, one piece. One small knot, half cut off, at one of the ends. No matter, it'll be in the waste portion.

The blank weighs 8.7 lbs, and has a nice dry ring to it when tapped.

I was planning an opaque finish for this Tele, but I can't do that to this wood...

Not worth the price

Verified Buyer


I love stewmac, Ive been ordering from here for ages but this was probably my most regrettable purchase. My body blank arrived with two massive knots in it. I was planning to paint the body anyways, but at this price point I was expecting good quality alder.

Good wood

By

Verified Buyer


Used this as the body wood on a recent Bass build. The blank I received was a three piece body, even thickness and no knots. Topped it with Walnut and used black binding then routed the edge to gain a two tone effect. Looks really good. Will use this again.

I was very pleased with the quality on this piece of wood.
I added some colour and lacquer to the finish. Think the wood turned out great.

Alder blank

I've got a block glued of 3 pieces of different density. Blank is glued very uncarefully, there is a space between 2 parts 0,5 mm. It appeared after I removed 5 mm of thickness. Please, take more attention to quality control.
