So I go to afghanistan here soon, are there any indiginous woods that would make goodguitar bodies? May chop some up and send em home if so? Also have some beastly projects in mind for when I return a year from now including a refurb of my 1983 tokai star, my take on a kelly star, a steinberger type esp m15, and a slimey looking kh602.

Where are you now? Chances are the trouble of buying the wood and cost of sending it home will outweight any advantages of just buying at home.

Surely you should be more worried about not getting shot?

Ha well, we may be chopping up wood and stuff for position improvement, buildings, etc...so the wood will be free . Just was wondering if there's some kind of crazy tonewood out there. I'm in colorado as of now, hate the snow aha.

The way I see it, if its my time to go, its my time...nothings gonna change it lol

If you chop any wood down yourself it'll need to be dried before you can use it. Either a few decades of air drying or a few days in a kiln. So make sure you have access to a kiln before packing and shipping some indigenous woods.

Hmmm...will a house oven work?
