I have such a lot of really good material that I never come to work on trees which are not quite that good. They usually then get a price tag and eventually they are sold. Not this one. Apparently no one could see anything in it and then the price was too high anyway and the tree was too big and heavy, only to be carried by two strong men. So the usual thing happened. I decided to give it a try myself in February 2007. See what happened in two days.
First the material before the work started.
