I have been considering building my own bass for a while, but one big wall I've hit has been just the price. Most online sources seemed a little expensive.I was looking around Home Depot for a part and wandered over to the flooring section. I was looking around and saw some wood that looked very nice. Then I thought to try a it as building material. So I went home and took some measurements on my bass and figured that this wood was priced so I could make a bass with it for under $40 USD. That is about 1/3 of the most inexpensive source I had found online. But I wanted to be sure it would work for a bass before buying it. I know of course to look for wood with no knots, but if I could, would this work?
