Builder Stories: Rob Roy by Florian Gebauer

The Rob Roy Solo 13 is one of the models we see less often, so it's always a treat to hear from a builder who's finished one. It's also nice to get a bit of backstory: Florian Gebauer used mahogany for his Rob Roy, re-purposed from stairs he salvaged from an old school refurbishing job years earlier. "This is the best 2nd life some scrapwood could expect," Florian writes.

We definitely agree - take a look at some of Florian's closeup and progress shots below.
