Rick was hired to travel to Finland to personally inspect the Karelian Birch needed for a client's custom restoration project. Below are a few photos from his trip.

  (Karelian Birch, also known as Masur Birch, is often used in the dash boards of luxury cars, knife handles, pistol grips, wood turnings, fine furniture, etc.)
