I'm trying to find a timber dealer in the UK who can supply hardwoods (preferably cherry or mahogany) in relatively small amounts and small dimensions for camera building. The thinnest I've found is 25mm which is still a bit too thick for me, and I dont have any machine tools at my disposal to cut it myself (nor the required woodworking skills). I;ve approached a few suppliers who offer bespoke cutting services who say they would not be willing to do the work as the wood is likely to warp. Model building suppliers stocks all seem to be too thin.
I'm waiting for replies from some musical instrument makers/ luthiers to see if they can sell me some offcuts .... but if anyone knows of a main suppliers or other advice that may help me, I'd be very grateful for the information.
also, any good suppliers of sheet brass?
