I know this has been talked about in the past, but I'm really having a hard time finding ukulele neck blanks made from Port Orford Cedar or Alaskan, etc. anyone have a source that they like?
Thanks,
Bill

I don't know any that sell uke neck blanks. Maybe google some lumber dealers and see if they can set you up with a piece. This place looks like a possibility....

In the UK I have sourced some Alaskan Yellow Cedar for neck blanks from a ship builders timber merchant (Robbins Timber). That is a bit far away for you - but may help in sourcing what you need locally.
