Have someone else do it for you, or buy a wooden fender one and sand it smaller (assumes that the size you think you want is still larger than their hole spacing, or that you buy the "vintage" one hole version.)
Since you're in Mystic, you could probably have one of the wooden boat apprentices (I assume they still do that?) knock you out something on their lunch break from scraps. Or your local luthier could do the same. Or the type of cabinet-maker that actually uses real wood...
If you want it lacquered it will cost you more (and feel worse, IMHO, but that's just personal preference.) I'd stick with oil & wax.
