 Is it possible to keep boxwood from warping?
Author: ruben

Some people claim that boxwood has unique acoustic characteristics as material used for building clarinets. How would you describe its specific characteristics? The company I have worked for has made a couple of modern clarinets using boxwood, but we have found that the wood warps to such an extent that it has to be regularly rebored. Is there any way to stabilize it?
