Steve, I have some questions about your SOLID WOOD mast. What wood did you use? Are we talking 18' for a Glenn-L 12? Round, oval, or rectangular? Dimensions? And most important, what the heck does that weigh? Thanks

Steve Are these a speciality item or do they sell them at Home Depot? I'm months away but would like ...

How did you do that???

I know from my reading here the last month that all you guys LOVE pictures. Well, I've started the construction of a Glenn-L 12 and I'm ready to share some pics if I can figure out how.
