About two years ago I came across this interesting wood in which I have found the tonal properties and sound transfer to be amazing. As I was building the instrument, I contacted Bill Laudenslayer at the Forest Service to see if he could shed some light on the type of wood and age. He was very kind to send the sample to John King of Lone Pine Research and sent me back this first class report, for which I can't thank them enough.

This is some pretty amazing stuff as you can see.
