December 30% off

Go to my ebay store for phenomenal deals as well.  Many of the deals there are even better than the stated % off deals that are available now.  I will try to have all inventory sold by a drop dead date of February 28, 2017.  Many things will sell out before then.  As an example, the split bass bars are almost out, cello bars are sold out except for the groups on ebay.  Sometimes big orders come in and buy up all of one item, so try to pick off at least some items you want sooner rather than later.  The ebay groups of items are unique and priced to move.

August 25 2016: International shipping is actual cost USPS Priority Mail for all orders.  International customers proceed with your transaction, then you will receive a payment request for the balance of the actual shipping cost after the package is weighed.

My name is Simeon Chambers, based in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA.   I cut and sell high quality Engelmann Spruce tonewood to many top professionals around the world.   I do the cutting in the forest, the splitting, the stacking, the milling in the shop, the grading and the shipping.  I see the wood from start to finish.  I air dry all my wood, no kiln or heat.   I do not ship any wood that is not ready to carve.    All these things are keys to why I have so much confidence in my spruce for makers at the highest level, anywhere in the world.  Please don't build with inferior wood. Many, many awards contine to be won at the VSA competiotion with my wood.  Instruments from this wood are also played in major orchestras around the world.

Whether you are a violin maker or run a violin shop, my products can help you.  I have spruce for tops in many grades as well as soundpost sticks and bass bars that are the best in the world.  I also sell repair wood and cleats.  I can cut just about any spruce product less than cello length for repairs or restoration.
