About us...in a nutshell

We source instrument-grade logs and lumber from sustainable or salvage sources, air dry the lumber a minimum of two years, carefully resaw it into thin plates, grade it, store it in our wood room kept at 45–50% relative humidity, and, ultimately, ship it to luthiers worldwide. At our shop tour page you'll find out more about our process. Our woods pages provide plenty of details about the species of woods we carry.

Welcome to Notable Woods! We've been supplying musical-instrument woods to luthiers and factories since 1999. We specialize in Hawaiian koa and woods of the Northwest—offering top, back, and side sets for guitar, ukulele, mandolin, electric, bass, Weissenborn and other stringed instruments.
