Composite Wood

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by .matthew e wengerd., Sep 3, 2005.

  1. Can anyone tell me what kind of wood product the entrance to the health and beauty store "The Body Shop" is made of? It might be a good exotic looking composite to use on instruments, eh?

    I've googled like crazy and haven't found anything yet.

    I think I just saw that the other day... I forget the name of the store, but I noticed walking past it that the entrance and all the shelves and counters were made out of it. From a distance it looked like Spalted something or other, but upclose it almost looked like it was wafer board (or sometimes called chip board, the cheap stuff they use under floors and siding on houses...) made with bamboo or something. I thought the same thing, It would make an interesting top...
