    Hey buddy, can you spare an aluminum?

    I'm bidding on a job to build chancel furniture (Altar, Pulpit, Font) for a church a couple of hundred miles away. The drawings they sent me call for about 40-50' of 1/2" brushed nickel inlay. The design is not beyond my skill level, and I'm sure I could handle the inlay....if I knew where to get 1/2" wide brushed nickle.

    Do any of you learned and experienced WW's know of a source for such an item? No need to rush, the quote isn't due till Monday .

    Here's the plan for the pulpit to give you an idea of the inlay placement.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

    $575!!! Ouch - and I'd still have to find someone to cut it.
    What I 'think' I need is .25 x .5 x 72 bar stock. About 48' worth.
