    Re: Advice saught for strip planking wood

    From that list I'd think tilia or poplar. As with any wood, use air dry and stick with heartwood.

    Re: H28 "Larrikin" rebuild

    For cuts like that, even with surprising amount of curve, I always use a circular saw. Much easier to control the saw sitting on the stock that control a long heavy stick pushed through a blade.

    There are wood stove restoration and sales shops. Google "antique wood stove shops in Maine". See what comes up. Those are the people most likely to know what to do.
