I can get Myrtle wood slabs for you. I think the longest I can get is about 5" long 2" wide 3/8" thick. Let me know if you cant find it and I'll get you some!

That is one awesome looking guitar! Check my photos if you like. I handled a knife that I use for hunting with Myrtle wood and I really like it. Its very hard wood and holds up to the elements very well.

wow john !!   i looked at some myrtle pictures and that is  stunning wood indeed !!

probably much harder than birch  because they even use it for guitars ( "tonewood")

That Birch looks a lot like Myrtle Wood that grows only on the coast of Oregon and a couple other places. Very hard wood with beautiful grain.

I love the handles on these knives! The wood is beautiful, it almost seems to melt. Great looking knives Kees
