Fir Voyager # 8102
Measures 12′ by 54″
This Fir Voyager has been on quite an amazing journey. It started out as part of a tree which was cut for the saw mills in the Pacific Northwest. Somehow it slipped to the sea, possibly in a storm, and drifted in the revolving currents for many years.
Sea clams burled in and made their homes in it as it traveled. After years at sea, the trade winds drove the log down towards the Hawaiian Islands. It eventually came to rest on a beach on the south shores of Maui.
My son Joe, surfs remote areas on Maui and happened onto the log. He and I retrieved it to my workshop. After months of work, this Voyager has turned into a rare, “one of a kind” beauty.
