Craft Supplies do keep a wide range of supplies for guitar making and a mahogany body blank is 21" x 14" x 2" which is plenty for most body styles and £35 is a reasonable price, though you may well be able to pick up off cuts from places used to working with larger pieces for less.

They also stock most other things you need from glue to nitro lacquer, so don't write them off just yet :D

In my experience what happens is you go up with an idea of what you want and how much you are going to spend and end up coming away with twice as much and a big credit card bill.

They also stock some nice figured tops, although they can be a bit on the pricy side.
