Hi guys/girls,
few months ago I've received totally about 3m of European Ivy about the thickness of 5cm. Ever since, I've been pondering - do you know what instruments could it be used for?

So... As in English ivy? The vine?

Is this lumber or vine form?

If in vine form - if you can saw it up, it would probably make good solid linings for about everything... You may not even need to do anything except wet it to bend it...

BUT... Vine wood is typically useless for anything structural.... It tends to be very flexible and very unstable.... I would be hesitant to use it for anything except linings... and I will build guitars out of about any wood I can get my hands on....

Thanks
