Something new.

I'm working on a new project.  It's a smaller high performance type board.  For this one I'm using paulownia for the bottom and deck.  It's easy to work.

The board is very light and strong.  Next, the balsa rail strips are applied.

Thanks to Randy Bogardus for sending me the paulownia.  He does beautiful work at Clearwood Paddleboards.

Impressive builds.

There are so  many people doing amazing things with wood surfboards.  It's easy to see that the Australians are raising the bar once again.

The annual Wooden Board Day somewhere down there is unlike anything here in the U.S.  Here is the link to this incredible event. Annual Wooden Board Day
