    I would think wood that hard and brittle would be better suited to a musical insterment rather than a boat. very interesting find, funny the quarry was just burning 25,000 year old wood!!!

    I didn't see where to get more explanation.
    Where did you get the comment about a quarry burning wood?

    That guy is not making boats he is making furniture. Or museum pieces
