    Default UK wood supplies on eBay

    I just bought some of these... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mahogany-...72.m2749.l2648

    Good quality timber and the Guy says he has about 400 of them for sale.
    I’m going to try them out on necks ... Just out of one I can get 3 soprano one piece necks and enough left over to make book-match tops and backs or side ribs and end blocks and linings...if I did scarfed and stacked necks ..who knows how many

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    The description says 100mm square but some are a bit bigger than that at 120 x 110 mm thats enough for a couple more sets of side ribs.

    Fingers crossed, and although I don't plan on building another 4 mandos, I could possibly get 4 necks out of a piece that size if I added "ears", or 2 without ears(if that makes sense).
    thanks for the link.
    Mike.
