go to the hobby shop and buy a piece 3" wide and glue it together to get the 6" width chosse a straight grain pice and if you need to bend it afterwards use hot water witha little ammonia and soak the top of the bend after it the water solution soaks in a few minutes it should bend easily but go slow too sharb a bend and it will split.tape in place till dry and it will hold it's shape some what for permanent gluing.no breakage during shipping either cost less than $2
