I haven’t been on the site for a little while as I’m trying to fix up the house to sell but I thought there’s no better place to start for guidance then right here regarding an up and coming “special” project. My 90 year old Grandmother ( I can only hope to live that long ) who is still with us is getting weaker by the month so my Aunts and Uncles have come to me to build her an urn; it’s her wish to be cremated.
I have a grizzly catalog with a section for luthiers that shows 5A cat curly maple and various inlays, like mother of pearl or shell/abalone inlays, that I would like to use so having said that this is where the questions come in to play.
1. What types of wood go well with this type of curly maple? I’d like to incorporate two woods together but have only worked with: Canary, Bubinga, Hickory, Olive, and Maple.
I won’t go too much further because I’m sure this will be a work in progress and go through many evolutions/changes as I start to build it and get feedback.
Thank you all and I’m VERY glad I have this site in my corner to take on this task.
