UPDATE…Spoke with Carolyn and I am Zorroing in on Maple B/S for the 45th build. She is setting up a time for me to speak with Mr. Hoover about his stash of Maple….. Nothing else decided yet.
I just have a “Gut” feeling that Maple is the right wood for an FTC.
Some of Y’All have been so very kind to offer your own caches of South American Braz and Old Hog for the build… Thank You. But somehow Maple seems to speak to me.
