I was speaking to my brother who lives in the area and when I go on holidays in a month we will spend an afternoon in the woods looking for that special tree. I'm getting it cut to approximate size at a local mill. There are still some good saw mills around, you just have to look a bit and ask the locals where they get their special lumber cut.
I promise, before September there will be a picture of a frame part on this blog. Now I'm in trouble.
