About a month ago I found a few project lumber pieces at my local Lee Valley that were suitable for neck and fretboard making. The prices were great too - for example I bought a very nice cherry piece enough for 4 necks for $8 CAD . Yesterday I went again and they had some decent wood so here is what I bought. The first 2 pics are 2 thin cherry pieces and a walnut one in the middle, which are enough for 4 fretboards. The 3 pics below are of some pieces that I can possibly use for neck making. Cherry - 3" X 2 X 21" African Mahogany - 1.5" X 5" X 25" Roasted Birdseye Maple - 1" X 7" X 21" The problem is of course they are kind of short for 25.5" standard Fender type necks, so I need ideas what to do with them? I was thinking maybe I can split the cherry into several fretboards with my band saw, is that a good idea? The mahogany one should be enough for a short scale fender neck, maybe 24" or 22.5", would that work? Not sure what to do with the roasted maple, so any ideas are highly appreciated?
