Re: Frame Wood Selection

My local supplier had 3/4" actual thickness African Mahogany in random length from 6-14 ft and width of about 7" to 14". Most were about 8ft and 7-8" wide. You just plan out the best you can. I had the luxury of having a supplier nearby which helped a lot.

Re: Building the Zip with the NEW Zip Complete Wood Parts Kit

I've been keeping pretty good comparison going of this kit build compared to my plans build. I was well over 300 hours at this point. Id say its closer to 40% time savings.
