...for Tim Blackheart Sassafras Beauty

Tim wandered into the bookshop where I work to sign some books one day......half an hour later we were deep in conversation about kayaks and canoes......24 hours later and the idea of a Snowshoe16 for day trips on Sydney Harbour with Kate and Coleby was firing ahead.....first thoughts were to go against all my previous Snowshoe builds which were mainly in Huon Pine, and go dark. It stemmed from getting access to some of the salvaged Hydro-Tasmania pipeline King Billy Pine - well weathered and stained black. I thought that a match could be made with Blackheart Sassafras and Tasmanian Blackwood.....some copper roves for a little "bling" perhaps......
