Sumac turning blanks

Can anyone suggest a source for sumac turning blanks? These will be for wood inserts on reel seats fora fly rods. They'd need to be about 4" long and 1" wide and deep. Thanks

You might check ebay but you would probably have to take a larger piece and cut it down to the measurements you need for your blank.

Don't take this the wrong way,but, why buy sumac, even if you can? Go into the woods and it grows everyplace like a weed. Mitch

You also need to make sure it's not the poison sumac.

Just a thought. You might be thinking of balsam wood. It is used a lot by carvers and is soft. Good luck. Mitch
