Thats a great find. You said you will use it for bindings also. Is it Ebony? If so, is it difficult to bend.
I can't remember it's I've ever bent ebony...I'll have go and see if it can be done...I remember Chuck saying that he bends it sometimes for bindings.I don't know about Ken and others, but I find ebony extremely difficult to bend for bindings. I usually get a little crack right there at the waist and these are tenors. I think the key is thinning them overall and especially at the waist. I tried the repair trick with CA glue with limited success (none). Usually I ended up trashing them which is a crying shame Ebony is too rare and beautiful to be trashing. Is is almost a sin.
