I have been told of a very interesting two pieces of wood. They are single pieces, slab cut, minimum 10 feet long and 24 inches wide ! They appear (I am told) to be about four or five inches thick. The fellow that told me about them, is going to try to obtain them. He said that if he gets them, he'd give me one, if I would make a big wave gun out of one for him. I can't imagine a single slab of old growth Redwood that large. I also can't imagine how daunting it will be to carve a surfboard out of something like that. I almost hope it doesn't happen. The damn thing might kill me !
