Wow – there is a tremendous amount of information and documentation there. I will have to spend more time going through this.

Thanks!

I’m surprised they used the template and router to make the wavy joint. I’ve made that joint I used a bandsaw with the two side stacked on top each other.
They could have used a jig saw and a skilled hand. Maybe they lack the knowledge and the skill?
Very interesting wood very tight growth rings

If you look closely, they rabbetted the joints

I did not see a rabbetted on the joints. I did see the groove for a spline.

Very interesting story. I wish the person writing it would have learned to spell “access” though. Very cool story to go along with some nice looking wood. Not sure what the timber in that area is like but on my place in Kentucky there are 3 white oak trees at least 6 foot wide at the base and far taller than the 42 feet…. they do taper though.
I’ve ready stories about the trees that use to be here in America. Some were said to be hundreds of feet tall and tens of feet wide. And I’m not talking about the big redwoods out west. I got a book somewhere talking about a huge walnuts from many hundreds of years ago
Another point of interest is if their timing is right that would put it around the time of Noah’s flood

You criticize Alaska Guy for spelling, but what about your own spelling? Don’t you mean “read” not “ready”. What about “a huge walnuts”? Do you mean “a huge walnut tree”. Should also be “feet” not “foot”, 3rd line down and a hyphen between “nice and looking”, 2nd line down. Don’t criticize others for their spelling until you know how to spell yourself.

I’m not the one writing a article, proofing it or getting paid for it…. or turning it from its intended G rating. Lol.
