I started using poplar because I can get it at Lowe’s in small headstock width pieces X maybe 3/16” thick X maybe 30” long…easily enough for 6 headstocks or more for a few dollars. I dare anybody to be able to tell the difference between holly and a nice white piece of poplar

I was up at Rare Woods USA last week and they had a lot of holly boards. Also, Gilmer Woods should have plenty, too.
