I am looking for some of the same things that my buddy Brock is looking for:

BRW orphan sides or pieces of any size big enough to make or book-match to make rosettes
BRW bridge blanks, the larger the better

And..... I would also be interested in Mad Rose as above too.

Thanks!

Seems BRW is in demand :-) I am also looking for some BRW bindings. Also Mad RW bridge blanks and fingerboards. I have a couple nice BRW fingerboards and a ~8 BRW bridge blanks - I need binding to match up with these.

I have a couple oversized mad rose bridge blanks in the upper left corner of this pic if this is what you guys are looking for(3"+x11").

I will look though some of my shelves and maybe slice up some mad rose tonight(not sure how I wanted to cut it yet(back/side sets), but I am sure there is plenty of "extra" pieces that will be available after the set stock is cut. I will add it to my table as soon as I can. I will also dig back through my curly Koa and see if I can round up another handful.

Curly maple and some sycamore. If the maple could have a fairly tight consistent pattern, and if the sycamore was darker with a good ray figure, that would be great.
Any mother of pearl and abalone blanks would also be cool.

I'm looking for tools.

Planes (#5 or #04)
Honing Guide
Chisels
Bending Forms/Molds
Plans
...or anything else that I young luthier needs to fully tool up.

I am also looking for any cheap b+s sets (cheap orphaned sides too, to practice side bending on), or cheap tops.

Really, anything that is a good value.

Anyone has any of the following they no longer need/use let me know:

I'm after a vacuum clamp -- the kind with which you can tilt/rotate the workpiece.

Also possibly interested in any drill press rosette cutters (LMI / luthiertool.com style).

I generally do bookmatched fretboards. I'd like to find some figured wood that could be split and bookmatched to do striking fretboards. Any 1.5 by 3/4 by 20 inches nice figured wood left over from resawing figured B/S sets could be interesting...

Thank's

Marc
