I don't know if I'm asking in the right place or if build diaries is better. My Mustang was in bad shape when I bought it years ago and I refinished the body using Manchester Guitar Tech nitro. It was always a bit patchy and very thin but I was young and impatient. Buckle rash has taken off a lot of the back paint and where I'd meant to leave it matte, my forearm has eventually buffed the contour. So, I'm planning to refinish it in the summer when the weather is a bit better! 

I've got an idea for a black grain filled and white blonde finish and wanted to get some Ash offcuts to practice with. Anyone know where to look?

EBay only seems to have planks or stuff like that for £20+ which is a bit more than I'd like to spend on trying it out. I could also venture out to the Bristol Wood Recycling Project to see what they have, but you never know what's going to be there and how much prep work I'd need to do to it first. 

I've attached a couple of pics.

You could try some local joinery shops they would probably have some , all the offcuts in my shop used to go in the woodburner 🙂
