Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    I knew that'd grab your attention :p

    Anyways, I need to find some wood to make some pickup covers. Anyone got any laying around? I looked at LMII, but the closest thing I could find was the bridge blanks, and they are not tall enough.

    What were you looking for (type/color of wood) and what dimensions do you need it in? I may have something extra laying around from my current project I'd like to get out of the way. let me know, you can PM if you'd like.

    You might be able to use turning squares. Everyone and their brother sells those. Figure out the dimensions you need based on the routs you want to use and the size of the coils and poke around.

    I tend to use cutoffs from the rest of the instrument when I can. I just liquidated my cutoffs at the end of summer, though.

    If you don't need exhibition grade exotics, check out fleabay. There's a lot of nice wood on there for good prices.
