Hey guys..

I'm thinking of making my first foray into the world of guitar building, i used to be good at wood working and art in school, so surely I have the skill to do something good...

My only real barrier is....finding the wood in the first place...

I live just outside Cork city, and I'm really stuck for a decent wood supplier :S I'm not too picky about the wood, I'm thinking maybe alder body, maple neck with rosewood fretboard. I'm not too stuck up about making the neck, but I really want to make the body..

If it turns out that there's not any worthwhile wood suppliers near me, could someone recommend a place that makes decently priced body blanks/bodies??

Any help anybody could give me would be very much appreciated as I've wanted to do this for a very long while...peace

type this into google:

hardwood merchant cork

you'll find sites like these: http://www.abbeywoods.ie/hardwoods.htm

local lumber yards are pretty much your best option, I've got a great hardwood specialist near me that can get me just about anything from standard to exotic and rare and will always let me pick out my piece before cutting it to size for me so I get a nice bit.
