Flitch-Matching

This is one of several methods for creating a two-piece flame maple top. Though it’s not book-matched, the wood is taken from the same piece of raw lumber so that the resulting grain, figure and pattern are very similar. A really good luthier can make a flitch-matched top look much like the more desirable book-matched version, in which a single slab of maple is slit down the middle, then opened like a book.
