A lot more useful than planks of wood ...

... is a pile of body blanks and caps ready for turning into guitars!

The large plank (see below) of olive ash is now turned into 1 body blank, and - potentially - a couple of neck blanks. With some careful cutting, the smaller of the planks will yield another body blank, with some interesting colour variation.

and this is the neck blanks (or maybe 2). As you can almost see, the grain is running vertical to the larger faces - ie it's quarter sawn. Perfect for guitar necks!
