I have been wanting this board for a long time. But things got crazy, and I had to put this on the backburner. It was about 2 years ago I shaped my last board from a solid chunk of western red cedar, and about that time I purchased this blank from Fiberglass Hawaii in Ventura.
i really shouldn't be doing this now, seeing as how I'm backlogged on so many other more important projects, but the wife is out of town for a few days so it seemed like a good time to make dust and noise :-)
I didn't make a specific tempate like I usually do, I just used a couple of different templates to get the shape I wanted. I got the outline cut a little oversze so I can clean in up a bit later, and maybe finish skinning the blank later today.
