If I wanted to use some rosewood for a tail graft, where do you think I could get one? Would I have to cut my own? Not sure where I'd buy a scrap piece. What about buying some headstock veneer and using that? Would it work?

thx

Headstock veneer would probably work just fine.

Yes headstock veneers will work fine. Also some end pieces of other sides will work. Or just a board from Lowes or Home depot, but you will have to cut a thin sliver off. I once bought a nice piece of flamed maple from Lowes for $5 and I just used that with some black/white purfling to set it off from my Rosewood sides. Turned out great!

Brandon -- If you have a Woodcraft Store anywhere nearby, you can find all kinds of woods there ... it'll make your mouth water and you won't get out of the store with just one thing. But, it's lots of fun and no shipping cost.

I've just found out that there is a Woodcraft store twenty minutes away.

I'm doomed... :)!

Jim -- No kidding. I went over there to ask a question one day last week and left with $59 worth of "small things." Then two days later I went over to get one more "small thing" and left with $61 worth. I'm trying to forget where the place is... It's those "small things" that'll get you!

However, I have found several of those small things to incredibly useful ... :-)

Hmm, found one in ATL. They offer woodworking classes too! Sounds like a nice place.
