Larry Fuller just got back from the Islands where he and Dick just build a series of solid redwood tow-in boards. But not just any redwood.........They used Sequoia redwood milled from a 4000 year old giant Sequoia which had fallen in the giant redwood forest and river-bottom redwood which was hauled up from the riverbottom where it sank while being rafted down river to the mill many decades ago. I used the same woods to make the fin sets for the boards. The lighter fin sets are the Sequoia redwood, two of which have a redwood burl ray in the centers. The ebony colored wood is the river-bottom redwood. this ebony tone penetrates the lumber through and through. In this photo the fins are cheater-coated, ready to laminate.
Cant wait to see the finished boards!
