Re: that's a hell of a nice shop...

I actually headed to that link first as the LA style outdoor stuff wasn't what I was looking for on the front page. The benches are nice, and it looks like they're pretty strict! Everyone uses a hungarian bench - if frank was the start of that, he reminds me of my relatives even more! "do it this way. When you pay me instead of me paying you, we'll do it your way".

The piano cases are spectacular. The talk about the ebony log reminds me of people building guitars complaining that they can't find the finest of woods for pennies.

"who would pay $100 a board foot for 12/4 wood?"

Someone with a buyer who will pay 20 times as much for the commission. That stuff isn't hobbyist wood.
