View Full Version : Looking for scrap wood or someone to cut some wood for me, for repairs

I'm starting out on some basic repair work and I don't have a bandsaw or really any tools yet. Is there anybody out there who would be able to help me with some small bits of wood for repairs?

Maybe even some scraps or offcuts or leftovers. I am happy to pay but I wasn't sure if it was better to put this post in the marketplace or luthier section.

Here's some of what I need:

1) Spruce stock for back bracing, 3 braces cut roughly to size
2) Tuner screw hole plugs, need these cut from mahogany with a plug cutter
3) Cleat stock: diamonds cut from spruce and mahogany
4) Bridge plate stock: some thin strips of maple to add next to misplaced Gibson bridge plates
5) Some kerfing scraps, maybe 10 inches worth

Obi Wan I ain't but maybe check and see if you have any local cabinet shops around and ask them or local high school (they took wood shop and metal shop out of our school) and perhaps they can help. Good luck with your project

Send me you address to "jupiteruke "at" outlook.com.
I can put together a 'package' with what you need.
(I'll be traveling for the next 10 days, but back after that.)
