We just added 9 very nice Sinker Santa Maria Slabs to the inventory that our good friend Scott Wunder of Wunderwoods in St. Charles, Mo. flattened for us a few weeks ago. He used his Lucas Swing Blade sawmill to take off all the rough chainsaw marks left behind when the logs were sawn into slabs in Belize. They’ll make some stunning “Sinker Edged” table tops. All of them are 2.25 to 2.5 inches thick and 16 to 35 inches wide by 6 to 13 feet long. We’re working on another 10 slabs we hope to have ready for purchase in a week or so. We will ship these slabs to anywhere in the mainland 48 contiguous United States at no extra charge. If you live outside that area please give us a call to get a discounted quote on what freight to your location would run. Take a look at the pics below to see some of the slabs AND some of the beautiful tables built from this material by David Shaw, Jr. of San Ignacio, Belize.
Our Sinker Santa Maria Slabs sport a variety of figure…
Available in lengths as long as 13 feet….
…down to just under 7 feet.
Perfect for special table projects…
…each having its own special beauty.
Wild grain and character…
…or a more “straight laced” look.
Not live but “Sinker” edges as unique as snowflakes.
Sculpted by years and years of river currents.

We just added some 3″ x 3″ x 31″+ Sinker Mahog Neck Blanks and there is some really nice figure in some of them. Weights are ranging from 5.4 to 8.6 pounds so those of you that need something light weight you got it while those looking for more pronounced tone and sustain can jump on the heavier side of whats in stock. We’ve also begun photographing them a bit differently as now you’ll see all 4 sides and both ends of the blank to help you make your decision.

I just finished uploading 18 Dreadnought sized Sinker Mahogany Back & Side sets to the online store. See them HERE. Eight of the sets are rare, dark, Caracolillo Mahogany and are stunning. Up close there is some figure in them that look almost like streaks of jaguar fur. Jump in and take a look soon if you want one….. they won’t last long!!
I just uploaded 7 more Sinker Mahogany Body Blanks to the Greener Lumber Online Store. I cut these blanks over the weekend out of the recent charge of planks taken out of the kiln last week. The rest of the material in those planks went to acoustic back and side billets, (Keep an eye out for sets cut from them coming soon!). There are some beautiful blanks in this batch of material including a couple of dark Carcolillo Sinker Mahogany blanks, (see below).
The next batch of material will be coming out of the kiln in another 8 days or so. It promises to produce some knockout blanks too!!
Another batch of planks has come out of the kiln and is being processed into body blanks and back and side billets:
Freshly dried planks ready to be edged into body blanks and billets.
Body blanks from this batch should be available for purchase early next week. Keep an eye out for them by checking their page in the Greener Lumber Online Store
