Thanks for posting that link Limbit. I do not think that is the paper I was remembering, but it certainly is a good one.
If any one has a link to a similar paper that showed  locations for stave that were taken from limbs, it would be appreciated.
if I remember correctly, there was some different opinions as to whether the top or underside of the limb was better.

From my experiance from my spliced limb from juniper. Top was better than bottom
Greg,
No risk, no gain. Expand the mold and try new things.

A bit late on this, but there is a paragraph about it on page 173 of TBB 1 with a drawing explaining the technique.  Hope you find some nice staves, might try to work a trade :BB >:D!
