uhh... why?

By the way, this looks really nice.


Because we already cut down all the large trees in America. "Virgin growth" trees = super dense, the rings are right next to each other, and people use this wood for musical instraments, shipbuilding, and all sorts of weird applications that demand ultra premium wood. Apart from reclaimed wood, it is simply not available anymore.
