"Great to hear about the Wooden Surfboards get together as I have Just started another new project.
Have cut the 4 cedar stringers and centre balsa logs to the profile and have chambered them.
Glueing the 9 pieces together today. The cedar and glass fin has been made while the abalone and cedar logo is the next step. Will send more progress photos as it happens." RichardI will keep you all updated as Richard progresses with this board. Lots of people out there with projects on the go. If you have one you would like to share , just send some pics and info.

John Cherry doing the chambering
Terry Martin, just eyeballing his handy work
Racked and ready to glass at Moonlight Glassing. 6oz both sides
"Templated blank before 1st shaping; 40lbs. Blank after 1st shaping 33lbs.
Finished board, after chambering, before glassing; just under 17lbs. (Yes, really)"
Thanks to John and Terry for sharing these shots with us and showing the whole process. If you want a board like this these guys can build you one. Or maybe this has inspired you to have a go yourself.
