Has anyone looked into using Tagua nut for slides or nuts,
here`s a description, Tagua nuts are small (roughly 2″ long) seeds from palm trees in the Phytelephas genus. Beneath the thin, brown, flaky skin of the nuts lies a stark white tissue that closely resembles animal ivory: hence Tagua nuts are sometimes referred to as palm ivory
I haven’t seen one big enough, they’ve been making buttons for shirts with those forever though?
I think Randy Bretz - Mojoboneworks has. I know he was carving tagua nut not long ago but I don't recall what for.
I was late finding out about this stuff., They sell whole nuts or slices.,.,I have seen CBG nuts n saddles made from it, .. I have seen a few big enough for a ring slide or a stubby slide.,., I say have at it.,.,
"poor man's Ivory"...
