    well .. i need 12 strips 16" long and 3/4" wide about 1/2" thick,,,,and a couple of pads 15" long and 4" wide,,, I can cut and make what i need out of a piece of lumber if i can find one,,, I looked on west marines site and i did find that they offer pieces of lumber about like i need,,, I just thought someone here might have some to get rid of,. and i would help them out..

    Stay away from West marine unless your nickname is money bags.:wink:
    They'll burn you a new one on something so simple.

    If you have a Rockler or Woodcraft store in your area they should carry it. Very pricey wood though. Last time I bought any was several years back and it was close to 25.00 a board foot if I remember right. You can also check Ebay.

    For what you are doing with it I would consider the Nuteak alternative.

    Check your yellow pages, look for hardwood dealers. They sell hardwood, not regular lumberyards.
