Making guitar nut and saddle blanks from bone

Gosh...I forgot to post this one here.  I guess I have been busy, or confused.  Any way, I sourced a piece of cow shin bone from a local butcher and after a lot of research figured out how to make it into stock for making saddles and nuts for guitars.  All of the fats have to be taken out of it because fat and glue just don't go well together.  There are also issues of fat seeping into the wood and ruining it and the finishes and also going rancid.  So, here is how I did it.

Thanks for dropping by
