About Us

Welcome to Adirondack Tonewood!

Thanks for visiting our site!  We are a small business, run out of a small shop, in an even smaller town located in the foothills of the Adirondacks. 

We specialize in Tonewoods.   We are not a lumberyard, a hardwood distributor, or an overseas importer.  We don’t sell the latest jigs and fixtures, sandpaper, tape, or finishing products, or even tuners.  Our only mission is to source the best possible woods for luthiers and instrument builders.  We work with as many local sawmills, sawyers, and loggers as possible to bring the best of the Adirondacks to your shop.  What we can’t source locally is provided by reputable wood suppliers from throughout the US and around the world.

We spend every day here in our shop working with tonewoods.  Being a small business allows us to offer a level of personal, exceptional customer service that we try to provide every day.  Each piece of wood we sell has been personally handled here in our shop and we treat it as if we were using it in one of our own builds. 

We have been fortunate enough to work with some great luthiers over the years and have seen some amazing instruments put in the hands of some great players.  We have also seen instruments built by all levels of builders, from someone just starting their first build, to the person that is building a guitar for their grandchildren to play and hopefully pass along one day.  Knowing that these instruments are out there and that they got their start here in our small shop is the best part of what we do!
