Nathan Grey's "New Wood"

Here is a new board from Sydney board builder and wood worker Nathan Grey.
"A 6ft asymetrical fish inspired by Carl Ekstrom, this one was built in paulownia and is a chambered/box construction with queen ebony fins and fin box’s.
And I finished it with a natrual oil burnished in up to a 1500 grit, very slick finish.
It has a slight hull up for smooth entry then with a single concave running down through the fins."
Nathan will be bringing this and other boards with him to The Wooden Board Day on the 9th of August. There are going to be plenty of boards worth checking out. Nathan has built some great boards in the past , but this is raising the bar.
