First, I am deeply saddened at upsetting Audrey and wish I had not done so. I would ask you not further contribute, we are friends and we need to allow each other our peace.
In answer to your question… And I would hope Bernhard will correct me here if I err…
The soundboard on the Limerick is 5-ply Finnish aircraft birch. Doesn’t get much stronger than that, or so I’ve been told. Constructing this kit was a dream-the soundboard slid right into slots pre-cut into the sides of the soundbox, no finishing strips to glue on or sand. The base is also pretty wide for a lap harp, a little awkward (knee-bones are a must!) but the projection is awesome. Had a soundguy in awe of this harp at a festival I played at this past summer.
Done bragging now….
