We have walnut for backs, trim and bars which was harvested from old growth timber about 30 years ago in Oregon.
Every piece is colorful and unique.
Coupled with a cedar top, the resulting sound is rich, warm, deep and mellow. This particular walnut is available until supply runs out.
We build autoharps with a number of standard tonewoods such as spruce and cedar tops, figured maple, walnut and cherry backs. Sides and trim hardwoods may be mixed and matched in a variety of ways.
Other woods such as Hawaiian koa and African padouk etc. are used on request when available, often at an additional price. We do not use sensitive rain forest woods harvested under poor ecological practices.
Other wood species available, some special cuts of wood such as a highly quilted maple will cost extra.
