Black Limba Thin

Not just for guitars and tonewood - but furniture too!

There is a large range of colour to Limba from light yellow to golden brown. In some cases there are grey to black streaks that is referred to as black limba. The lighter colours are sometimes referred to as white limba. As the wood ages, it tends to get darker. 

Black Limba is also very popular for our luthier customers who use it to make solid-body electric guitars due to it's very light weight and density. 

The pieces we select for you will always have some black streaking in a percentage of the board - sometimes even the odd flair of orangy-brown can be found.

Great for crafts, scroll saw work, intarsia, chip carving, laser engraving, and much more!

In order to offer more protective packing for shipping - our lengths are often 1/4" less than sizes listed. Need a wider width or longer length? Please email us for a quote. Custom millwork charges will apply.

Beautiful wood

I’m always very pleased with the lumber they select for me. Obviously every piece can’t be something spectacular but there’s usually at least one piece that really stands out and shows the true beauty of the species.

Great looking piece

I’ve seen other people use black lamba and I’m excited to try it out!
