    Today, I got wood.

    9ft of 12.5" wide 8/4 sapele and 5ft of 4/4 wenge.

    If you buy any wood, or have anything you want to show off, feel free to post up! Idea is to be like a "What's on your workbench?" for wood purchases :agreed:

    The last pic, those 2 billets are at least 2" thick. Should make for some awesome tops.

    Indeed it is. I am thinking it would be a crime to degrade it with frets and dots, so it's going to be a fretless bass, no lines, side markers only.
