    Does everyone here buy soundboards from tonewood suppliers? I'm wondering how viable it is to source quarter-sawn spruce/maple planks and slice off some soundboards at home, either with a band saw or (god help me) hand tools. I need the maple for a lyre I'm planning on making a large monochord, and while it needs a spruce face, it's far bigger than a guitar top so I'm looking into alternatives to the fairly pricey tonewood suppliers (especially as I'm Irish, no local suppliers in the country).
