Joe Harmon, builder of the high-performance supercar
Borrowed from bow-makers
Joe and his crew made Splinter's 400 inch-lb. leaf spring from laminated osage orange. Bow-makers prize this tough wood for its strength and flexibility. Joe had to travel to Kentucky to find logs large enough to yield useful veneer. The logs were so hard that they threw sparks and damaged blades as they were being rotary-cut into veneer sheets.
