strange allergy / window frames
My carpenter / carver is allergic to wood! At least the wood I'm using in
my plane. It is Santos rosewood, and the carpenter is about 65 and from
Brazil. I believe that Santos is somewhere in Brazil. I've heard of this
before because of the oil in rosewood. Unfortunately, this occurred while
building the rear window frames, a massive pain in the butt (I think it is
close to impossible). I don't have the level of skill to carve the frames
within a reasonable time period or to my satisfaction. How would other
builders go about making good-looking upholstered window frames. I have
EAR sound deadening and headliner installed and I refuse to tear it down.
It's really a shame because I have the panel, stick and handles done. I
wanted the frames too. There must be some Murphy's law for this situation.
I am so close to done, making this a real kick in the teeth.
