Satisfaction

One of the most fun parts of this build is squaring up the rail strips.  I've always liked the feel of a plane peeling wood.  Balsa cuts easy and doesn't make much of a mess compared to many other types of wood.  


It's very relaxing to plane.  Kinda like therapy.  I worked on the top this morning and roughed it in.




The board is light and strong.  It's starting to take shape.




I'm really looking forward to shaping the rails after it gets cleaned up a bit.
