Thread Name: What are Wobble Boards made of?
Subject: RE: What are Wobble Boards made of?
Wobble Boards are made of wood from the Australian Wobble tree. The best wobble boards are made from Kimberley Wobble although Tasmanian Huon Wobble comes a close 2nd. The Kakadu Wobble from the far north of the Northern Territory is a much inferior Wobble and is in point of actual fact, a hybrid Wobble crossed with the Northern Kimberley Boab tree. Boards from this source give a much more hollow sound with much less sustain. More like a "Blobble".
I hope this is of some assistance and should anyone wish to purchase a genuine Wobble board. I can supply them (in kit form) specially laminated in your choice of colours. (Please check Bunnings Laminex Chart for your prefered colour, then forward a money order for AU$200.00 to me at "One Born Every Minute Promotions"
