Just like building 12" of a canoe, steam bent ribs, planking and all. Building for the auction at the assembly in Paul Smiths, NY. Since i set up and call the auction, its always fun to auction off one of your own pieces and send it home with a new owner. This one is built of Birdseye Maple, Mahogany and Roasted Curly Maple. Maybe not the most functional, but still a nice piece of wood.
