Another unbelievable lumber find from my favorite local specialty yard. From what I understand this is a very limited supply from a Belizean river that locals were given permission to harvest. I’ve seen the logging maps from the British that were taking this lumber back to Europe in the 17-1800’s, so you can almost find out where it came from. Who knows how old it was when it was logged. It’s a king size frame with an overall width of 10-6” on the head board. The footboard is the resawn match to the live edge on the headboard. Side tables with cocobolo drawer pulls are coming next. Simple, but very heavy awkward project.
