Kiln dried and surfaced on two sides, this wood has a wide range of color from red, orange, yellow, and green, to golden and brown. An excellent substitute for Brazilian Tulipwood, Canary is less expensive and more readily available while still containing some of the coveted colors of Tulip. This very colorful batch of Canary wood may contain occasional bug holes, a slight bow up to 1/16, and surface checks which are very normal with this species. Boards are clean and usable. Generally, they have very bright tap tone for use in musical instruments. Canary is dense enough for fingerboards, acoustic guitar backs, sides and Ukuleles. There are numerous pin holes on both faces. They are along the right edge of the number side, approximately 2-3" down from the top, penetrating through the other side. It has nice width with figured areas.
