Whoa. Me, too. Experiments, perhaps?

only 30 of those ever made.  we produced them while i was still developing the a5 corner system and investing in a milling machine to make them.  the hardened copper corners are surprisingly quite robust.

What kind of ledge is Bongard using on Sea of Dreams that is shown on the cover of the Bigwalls Book?

There is another ledge for sale as well. The bed looks like it needs some work, but the fly looks great. Maybe I should try to buy it just for the fly and then resale the ledge?
