    I searched stewmac and Warmoth and the like , but the only body blanks I could find were already glued. I am looking to build a neck through and want to find some ash wings for it that are not already glued. Any ideas? I suppose if I did find a piece and the price was right I could just cut it down the glue line but I figure it would be more cost effective to buy two smaller, seperate pices.

    Tagua nuts are use by wood turners to make small decorative items such as miniature bowls and vessels...It has the look of ivory when finished and buffed out.
