    Iím sure Iíll end up making more stewmax purchases along the way. Membership reduced my shipping by half and 15% product discount promotion went a long way for paying for the membership.

    Ok, Iíve decided to cheat a little bit. Two reasons.
    1) I think 3 months is going to pass by faster than expected.
    2) Iíve got some nice Indian Rosewood headstock laminate Iíve been saving for something special.

    Well it got here faster than I expected. I thought the fedex messages were a con.

    Ok, top wood is sorted.
    Iím having trouble sourcing timber for neck, back and sides.
    Stewmac doesnít tell you the products are unavailable until you click into the productÖa bit disappointing considering I paid the 12 months membership to save money on shipping.
    The local timber supplier in Naval Base canít help me out.
    I canít find the dimensions I need for slabs on eBay.
    Iíve spent some time searching around the internet without much joy.
    Does anyone have any suggestions where I should look?
    Minimum slab dimensions are two 540x220x25mm, ideally book matched.
    Laminating a neck gives me more flexibility with dimensions. Whatís going on? Demand greater than supply?

    Depending on what you are after you might find something by consulting Anagote Timbers in Marrickville

    In oz try Tasmanian tone woods who may be able to cut something.
    Or https://guitartimbers.com/product-ca...nd-sides-sets/ donít hesitate to give Dave a call as he generally has a lot more than on his site and can cut etc to demand.
    Ormsby guitars are about to open a parts and timber store shortly online ( theyíre in Perth) maybe email them from their website and they may be able to assist.
    Or OS I buy from the guys below but the freight lately is atrocious.

    Every few days there is different product on as they kiln and cut
