So today I purchased a big chunk of wood from a fellow swaylockian, and I'm pretty stoked about it. I suspect I may not have too many boards left in me, and this has been on my bucket list. Carving a surfboard from a solid chunk of wood.
So I'm considering my options. Maybe a historical reproduction. Or a classic shape with historic roots. Trying to come up with something appropriate to the blank.
I'm leaning toward a functional board with a classic look.
But my work schedule is kinda crazy right now, so I probably have plenty of time to mull it over.
The second pic is how I imagine my blank started out :-)
