Remember that not all materials will always be available. Many materials are vintage and aren’t made anymore. Every now and then I get my hands on vintage rods but not very often. And some materials are special order and only available for a short time.
If you don’t see what you’re looking for let me know what you want and I can try to find something with you from several of my vendors (listed below).

Links to sites with acrylics that you can choose from- if you see something you like, ask about it. There are some materials that I won’t work with for various reasons.
Bear Tooth Woods
Exotic Blanks – I won’t use blanks with chunks of wood or other objects in them for threaded parts. I can use these sometimes for sleeves.
- We can use many types of wood, dense woods are better
- I can make bands, sleeves, and rings from wood – cannot be threaded
