I have a bit of left over Idigbo, 9" x 12" x 1.25". Nothing huge... was wondering what I could make from it. I don't want a stack of pens :) Any suggestions?
For anyone not familiar it's a brown African hardwood of low density, fairly good strength & not much figure. I gather it's best kept dry.

neck and pegs.
I had one of those turn up at my workshop from a museum wanting a
replacement for a broken peg. I didn't have any Idigbo so I used
Sapele and delicately stained it to match. I shuffled the pegs around
(they had been in the wrong holes anyway) and I was delighted to find
the owner couldn't tell which was the replacement.
