    Nice maple!!

    Also that cocobolo looks pretty badass. Just be aware that you need to clean it with acetone really well just before gluing, it's very hard to glue because of the oil in it.

    Also helps to use an epoxy rather than a water-based glue like Titebond.

    Got some really nice roasted maple recently:

    The board was bought by someone else to be used on a Carvin, but it warped AND cupped by the time it got to them, so he had them send it to me in hopes I could make stable neck blanks from it (one being for his build).

    I got 3 neck blanks from it.

    [​IMG]
    And 8 fretboard blanks (which haven't been split up yet).

    It's pretty unreal, for sure. Might be one of the nicest examples of that pattern that I've found.

    Agreed BW! +1 for Fraser Valley, I've never once been disappointed by them. Within Canada their shipping costs are better than anywhere else, ship quickly, and everything I've ordered from them before has been top notch.

    Big haul today.

    [​IMG]
    A pair of myrtylewood tops and a pistachio fretboard blank from Oregon Wild Woods.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    A 7ft long x 14.5" wide by 6/4" thick Claro walnut board with some figure (some of what looks like flame is likely planer marks, but there is some good figuring in the middle and left end of the board).

    [​IMG]
    The rest of the sapele mahogany board I had bought previously. 8/4, 13" wide, 8ft long.

    [​IMG]

    Short piece of 4/4 wenge.

    [​IMG]
    And this is a top I've had sitting around that made it through the flood. It'll be well over 3/4" by the time I plane the other side.

    Appreciate it. The customer said Claro was fine, so I'm taken care of for now.

    Damn Sully, that's some fine figuring!

    So I picked up some wood that I am happy to share

    2x Walnut (26mm x 900mm x 180mm)
    [​IMG]

    2x Curly maple (26mm x 800mm x 180mm)
    [​IMG]

    and 2x Curly maple (26mm x 1250mm x 250mm)
    [​IMG]

    I have 2 great slabs of swamp ash at 600mm x 55mm x 450mm that I am itching to get started on a build with.

    With the above goodies I was hoping at trying my hand at a neck through build.
