Norwegian Spruce and Californian Redwood in South Africa

I have just received this email from Owen Lottering who is building his first wooden board. He lives in Knysna, South Africa (about 2 hours drive from J Bay )This board is glued up from Norwegian Spruce and Californian Redwood which are both grown in local forests. He said he hasn't chambered the individual pieces this time as he wanted to feel the shaping process. His next board will be a chambered fish in African Balsa and Redwood. Owen is in the local timber industry so if you would like to contact him   -   I will post his progress shots as they come through.
