I have inherited a large piece of ebony, 1 7/8 x2 7/16 x 32. I am not sure but I think this wood is at least 45 years old. I have no idea what to do with it, cut it up for violin boards, or sell it for guitar boards. any suggestions?

Send it to me and feel good about having done your good deed for today :)

Please don't cut it up! Leave it as it is and let the person who has a use for it decide how or if it should be milled. 

You would be shocked at how many pieces of good wood I have seen ruined by a well meaning person who decided to cut it for maximum yield for a certain purpose, only to find that they have made nearly each and every piece useless because of a lack of understanding of what was needed in the end.

Exactly, the problem is my own ignorance. I have no idea how to cut it to have the wood grain running right for a violin board. I am sure this is more important than yield.
