Two years? WOW - hope to see occasional pictures along the way. I sure could use a lesson in PATIENCE.

Its' never hot or cold in New Hampshire... its' always seasonal.

Count me in!
Looking forward to the developing project.
Good to "see" you again.

Oh man I can't wait to watch this one unfold!!

Speaking of figured walnut, there is a guy on my local craigslist that is selling some curly walnut for $10 bd./ft. I didn't know if you were still looking for any or not.
