Cutting the logs - Part 3 - ash tree
Finally the ash tree got cut, a really beautiful piece with a dark heartwood. With the help of templates we decided which part of the boards, cut with the log band saw, will be backs and which will be sides. Afterwards the boards got cut and stacked airy to dry. So hopefully, in a few years we will be able to build some beautiful and well sounding „Hanika“-Guitars from domestic woods.
In summary this complex and time-consuming action from the submission to sawing the woods, was a very exciting affair. Selecting promising logs, get them to a realistic price and finally convert them into very valuable pieces for our instruments. For sure, we will take part in the next franconian wood submissions to be on the lookout for suitable preciositiy.
