The weather is starting to become more active. Tropical Storm Alberto is making waves in the gulf. That's making local panhandle surfers happy. For the east coasters it's making a lot of rain.
Yesterday, I sanded and planed. The way I lay up my rail strips is very time consuming. I like to take my time.
This board seems to be working out well so far. It's a pleasure to work with balsa and paulownia. Sanding these woods is so easy.
It's taken a while to get the board to this point. I did a new nose detail that makes this one special. I'm still figuring out new things to try.
The board is ready to have the rails shaped. I love to do this part. For this I use a block plane, modeler's plane and sanding board. Power tools aren't needed.
Thanks for your support.
