BOAN equals TOAN alert!

The new frets required the nut to be raised by a fraction. Could 'of' shimmed it but decided to make a new bone nut from some leftover Pack and Save cow bone which was chewed over by the our late dog many years ago :(

Got two blanks out of this piece :D (and yes, the bone was properly degreased)

One bone nut for this guitar and one blank for the next guitar:

Gone away from that, too stinky. I flatten one side on Sandpaper by hand. Then glue it to a straight piece of timber and feed it through the table saw. Very delicate work and safety glasses , dust mask and earmuffs are prerequisites

Ta, I use white spirit or white gas whatever they call it in NZ.
Drown the bone in a jar with the WS for a few weeks.

Best to cook the bone beforehand to get all the marrow and most of the grease out of it. You can use the brew for a soup base too :D
