Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.
Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.

In Leroy, West Virginia is a guitarmaker by the name of Jim Sutherland. Jim’s daughter, Carrie Stutler and her husband Ken, assist Jim as well as make their own guitars, mandolins and dulcimers. They do it mainly as a hobby and for fun, but their quality is at a professional level. Each instrument is very well built and each has a unique sound based on the wood type used. Jim gets most of his supplies from Woodcraft in Parkersburg, which makes this story very special. It is not every day we have the honor of presenting you with a story that involves a country music legend such as Dolly Parton, and we are grateful to the Sutherland-Stutler family.
