Our supplier mentioned that it was the first time in 40 years that he found such outstanding flamed walnut!
In earlier times, loggers cut trees according to the moon calendar. “Moon Wood” is wood that is harvested at a certain period in winter around Christmas time at the waning moon. Since sap flow is at a minimum it’s less apt to shrink or crack.
In a fascinating article of Premier Guitar, professional luthier Ervin Somogyi wrote on this subject. Somogyi has spent more than 40 years in the guitar-building business and is one of the leading authorities on the principles of acoustic guitar construction. He believes that some woods seem different—not because of their different species, as you might expect, but because of when the trees were harvested.
Italy's Lorenzo Pellegrini concurs. He has worked the forest since he was 9 years old. Now 83 and a master tree picker in Switzerland's Risoud Forest for the past 53 years, Pellegrini says there should not be too much water in timber. "The tree's heart should stay dry. That gives the best wood. Solid. Enormous resonance," he says.
"Once you have found the perfect tree, you have to wait for the perfect day to cut it down. That day comes at the end of autumn when the sap has sunk back into the ground. When the moon is lowest on the horizon, and furthest from the Earth. On that day, the tree is as dry as it can be."
Robin Boucher personally selected the red spruce used to create these tops.
