Welcome to Better Tonewood.

After selling tonewood on the Internet for four years we have finally produced our own website. We import tonewood items primarily for the guitar builder (acoustic, classical, and some electric).  All our suppliers are responsible organizations which meet local and international regulations.  Tonewood is a very personal thing and every build is different.  So do not hesitate to e-mail us about your needs if they are not on the website. Tonewoods can be difficult to photo especially monochrome ones. The listing will make it clear where the photograph is of the actual item that you will receive. The woods may be in sawn form, sanded or treated to bring out the figure.  In order to help us select your item, sometimes we have listed different sizes. Bigger sizes may be a little more expensive but often not.  Send a note with your order if there is something which we might need to be aware of. You are welcome to return unworked timber to us for any reason.  There is free shipping for orders over £150 to most UK mainland addresses. Other locations such as Northern Ireland and islands will involve additional shipping charges to be paid by the customer where the cost to us is above our standard rate. If you wish to register, then please change the country from the United States to United Kingdom. Thank you for visiting. E-mail DLHowitt@aol.com with queries.
