Tips for Choosing the Right Wood
~ Detailed Engravings or Engravings with a lot of text: If you’re ordering a box with a detailed engraving, or an engraving with a lot of text, keep in mind that detailed engravings and smaller text shows up better on lighter colored wood (Ambrosia Maple or Cherry).
~Wood color and grain vary from piece to piece, even wood in the same species.
~Walnut wood, although normally darker, can have lighter contrast and the color can vary greatly.
~Ambrosia Maple wood, also known as Ghost Maple, also has varying color and grain. Although normally light, ambrosia maple wood is known for its dark grain contrasts, adding brown, gray, and bluish highlights to the wood. Ambrosia Maple wood also has worm holes. The worm holes and darker grain highlights come from the Ambrosia Beatle Inhabiting the Tree before it was harvested, hence the name “Ambrosia Maple”.
~Cherry wood and Mahogany wood have the most consistent coloring, although Cherry wood will turn darker over time. Here is a little info for comparing the woods:
-We select specific cuts for each music box, but if you have a specific preference, would like a lighter piece of walnut, an ambrosia maple piece with a lot of grain contrast, etc., please note your preference in the “Add Note to MJs4848” box in your cart and we will do our best to pick a piece to your request.
