I couple of days ago I posted this guy’s site:
He is an incredible carver working in ivory, and he sells a material he says is
the best copy of ivory out there. I wanted to make a guitar bridge (1 X 6 X
3/8”) out of fossil ivory, but it would have bee $2-300 for the piece and I
would have been afraid to carve it. So I talked over my needs with this guy and
he said he would send me some extra material to play with, Well it came today
and I am tickled. Here is a bridge in real fossil ivory
I called this guy to ask where he gets it, and he said they don't offer it
anymore because it is too expensive. Just beautiful. I can't even afford the
fossil ivory pins that are stuck in the bridge.
Here is what came today for $25 + $5 shipping:
The largest piece is 7 X 1-3/8 - he was very generous in that piece. I think
the stuff looks great. Scroll to the left for 3 shots.
