Thanks. Grew up making foam boards and they make such a mess that finally chucked working in foam. Wood is so much prettier and who cares about saw dust. Posted some video on how we do them at YouTube, just search under oldfartssurf.
Your work is stunning. We are wood starved down here, lots of soft woods. We have to take apart wood stacks at Home Depot and Lowes to find good spruce. We do use western cedar along with the lightest spruce we can find. Would love to have local sources for harder woods. Heres some other work that i've done: http://www.to-n-fro.net/furniture.html
Have a great weekend.
