Looks like i'm heading into a pretty interesting build- Going to take a while. It has been some time since I did a build thread over here, so I thought it would be a nice time to say hello to old friends and maybe make some new ones along the way. Not much to show yet, I've spent the past couple of weeks honing in on the various components, design features, wood species, etc. Started placing orders a couple of days ago. Now waiting for materials to arrive. Here's a hunk of ancient kauri wood from New Zealand. It has everything going on- curl, wave, and whitebait.. Should be here in a few days.
