Lou Asked and A Fan Answered
Lou Sauzedde’s Q&A video helped him to locate fan who had a perfect piece of tree to harvest and cut for the breast hook of the work skiff. Follow Lou into the woods of Eastern New York in episode 25 as he selects his timber and helps his new favorite fan mill it into the perfect piece for the skiff. As you can imagine, Lou was being fairly picky about finding his ideal piece of lumber, and as such, was waiting to locate a piece that would work just as he’d hoped. He’s found it and it’s a fun journey to the woods to witness all of the thought that goes into sourcing perfectly curved timbers for the Work Skiff.
Shipwrights are known to be particular, and Lou is no different. However in the last months, or 25 episodes, he has found a new love – his extremely outspoken and appreciative audience. He’s reading your comments and listening to you – and he’s prepared to continue to engage you in answers that are steeped in the Old Man’s Method. As the skiff comes together, stay in the conversation. Use our comments section below to speak and become part of the build.
