Varies in color from a darker chocolate brown to a lighter purplish or reddish brown, with darker contrasting streaks. The black streaks can sometimes form a unique grain pattern that is sometimes referred to as “spider-webbing” or “landscape figure.”
We milled all of our bridge blanks from pre CITES material we obtained from a retired woodworker. This material is from the late 1950's to the mid 1960's.
Bridge blanks will be generally dark with uniform color and quartersawn; some blanks might be slightly off quarter by less than 30 degrees. Please see product image
