I was out and about a few Sundays ago and as usual could not resist a garage sale. Turns out the guy had some Brazilian Rosewood left over from a job a while back. He said he was working with another guy who brought the wood in and he milled it up into guitar wood. Unfortunately it was not at garage sale prices, he knew what he had, and it was nice.
That 1/2 log would make a nice supply of acoustic guitar bridges.
