Carbon Fiber Trees?

Dang! All this time I assumed that carbon fiber came from oil just like darn near everything else. And it comes from trees? Oh well, time to stop digging - the hole is deep enough.
Great site on building GPs, thanks. How does the wipe-on-wipe-off "feels like a boiled linseed oil finish" epoxy hold up down there in that Gulf Coast sun? Good point about whittl'n 2x4s to get the shape worked out before going for the laminated fancy GP.
Happy building, MD
