First, choose a wood to use as scales. I bought a scrap piece of cherry wood 2″ x 2″ x 6″. You can use most scrap hardwoods, or purchase precut blank scales in a variety of colors, both stabilized and unstabilized. Stabilized woods are infused to keep them from expanding and contracting from humidity and moisture…and to make some softer woods handle ready. I’ve seen videos while researching this project where old pallet wood was used with fantastic results.
