Tony Crimmins new project

Here are a couple of shots of his latest project which is slowly coming to life. 
" Basically it’s a 9’6” x 23” old school single fin longboard.  Paulownia and ply frame with some nice paulownias planks for the bottom and deck.  I worked pretty hard on the templates with this one – the thicker stringer allowed me to foil the nose and tail down quite fine.  I am keen to see just what the foil looks like when I get the deck on.  Got the timber from John Whitewood at Tyalgum just over the border – it’s great to work with."
Sure looks like a nice shape and should be a real trim machine. Thanks for the pics and keep us posted.
