"Hi Brent, anything that has a dense/solid material, is able to fit at the end of the fingerboard and give correct intonation and hight over the first fret will work.  Taff"

Blind Doughboy replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Ideas for supporting nuts
"Yup . . . that almost always works. No need to reinvent the wheel on this. I generally use a zero fret, but glue a bone or plastic nut against the end of the fingerboard for use as a string guide. Prior to the gluing, test fit the nut both for width…"

"Hi Brent, lots of good ideas here. Most of the time I just glue my bone or ebony nuts up against the end of the fingerboard and the surface of the peghead. Never had an issue, may not work in every situation but when I do use it, it works fine. Taff"

"That's very similar to the one I was describing, but it was bone or plastic and the screws were countersunk."

"I've been using a bolt/screw for a nut on my CBG's for awhile now. I use a half-round file to make a groove for the screw. I usually add a drop of super glue so it doesn't fall off when changing strings. Gluing or screwing a piece of…"
