    Anyone here in Portland Oregon?

    Would welcome a visit but it's a 6 hour drive from Portland. Where are you visiting from?

    Quittenbachtal in winter: workplace of the Hopf family.

    I see your point of view and it was my first thought about the question. My first comment really was about the mountains posted and the rolling hills and hollers,...not the architecture...compared to the high alpine mountains of the western US, Camada and Alaska...and the Alps. The Appalachian mountain chain is unique and has certain aspects about it, easily recognizable to those who live there...North and South... Maybe the the Norway Fjords are similar...I never had the pleasure of visiting Norway. I have spent much time as a commercial fisherman on the Bering Sea, and have seen and walked on some very remote islands and inland places in Alaska.

    I lived in Germany for two years. What I don't see here in the states very often is the architectural timber and stone houses.

    Have you tried wetting the wood. I know quilted figure will hide and disappear until placed in UV and/or wetted. Looking good...

    I see many similarities.

    The importance of varnish

    My thoughts about amber varnish are the same as Christians. I love using it straight and mixing with other varnishes. Nunzio makes an outstanding amber varnish.

    Those photos look so much like northern Appalachia...particularly where I grew up in northern NJ, eastern PA, and the Catskills of NY.

    Thanks Mike,...still a ways to go on the finish. I'm always anxious at this point about stringing it up, but I've learned to give the varnish as much time to harden as possible before preceding on.
