Scottish Yew Fretboard blanks
Numbered and sold by number Yew is nice to work, can be a bit brittle so care is needed, it's a bit toxic but don't panic, try not to breath any wood dust as it's never a good idea but this is not a big quantity and there is a tendency online to overstate the risks.
1 76mm by 553mm by 9mm very nice quality, small amount of pip, very little sapwood, can't see any splits.,
2 76mm by 516mm by 10mm a few pips, a nice sapwood streak on the back, no visible splits, :Nice.
3 76mm by 545mm by10mm, fairly pippy, nice colour bands, no sapwood or visible splits, this is the nicest yet
4 76mm by 575mm by 8.5mm sapwood, purple streaks and tiny knots, some tear out from my thicknesser on one side, nice but may be more tricky to work, one for the bold.
5 76mm by 575mm by8.5mm pips, colour variations and one small patch of trapped bark, very nice and should turn out great but again it's for the bold
