Does anyone know a good source for small pieces of book matched lumber? (3-5”w x 10-12”l x .74-1”t.) eBay has a lot of knife scales and larger pieces of lumber but I’m looking for something in the middle.

Thanks!

Agreed….cut it yourself. Small pieces are easily done with a hand saw. Bandsaws and table saws can do bigger pieces. The size you mention would take about ten minutes with a hand saw.

Good Luck!

Anyone with a bandsaw with resaw capability can get you book-matched pieces.

Have your say...
