    WTB linen spool White/Wine

    I need order a spool of linen for a wrap job request, and since It's a somewhat seldom used color (for me anyhow), I thought I'd give It a shot here first, just in case someone wants to unload a spool that they don't use much. Doesn't need to be a full spool, but half full or more preferred...

    Mixed lot of wood for sale.

    This is a headstock that I had Chris Hightower set up for me. I only used a few times for indexing cues while I was inlaying them.
