Hi Mike, thnx, although you may be overstating the case for my woodworking ability. It's not going to be a gun per se, but some of the old wood boards that inspire me were called guns in their day, different from a modern big wave gun. Like the Hobie Makaha gun Jeffrey suggested.
Both Bill Thrailkill and Uncle Grumpy have assured me they will grease the wheels for a peek at the SHACC Surfing Heritage museum's wood boards, so I'm hoping to make a trip down before the shaping begins in earnest.
I have a LOT of work to do, cleaning the huge, crude slab of lumber up and prepping it. I'd like to get it resembling an actual blank before too long, cuz just moving it around is gonna give me a hernia! So right now I'm gonna focus on that, and deal with the real shaping once I have a definite design.
