He has just finished one hollow framed wooden board and 2 with an EPS core and vacuum bagged timber over.
"The last hollow I made. It's a 6.4' x 20" x 2.3/4". I used the Paul Jensen construction :
- Paulownia structure and skin with walnut tree veneer
- The rails are made of paulownia, red cedar and cork.
- Fins, nose and tail block in walnut
- the leash plug is in rosewood
I made the epoxy glassjob by myself... That's why it's not really clean."
I made it with a 25kg/m3 blank (no stringer). Skins are 3mm thick and the rail thickness is 20mm (the first 4mm 'inner strip' + 4x4mm strip to shape the rails). I use gorilla PU glue.
On longboard 1, I made the tail and nose with scrap wood (paulownia and I don't remember what is the other).
On longboard 2, I put different veneers (ebony, oak, mahogany,wallnut, cherry tree... and other I don't remember); the foot inlay at the front are in red cedar.
I have now to install fins and leash plug. As there is no stringer, I want to glass it with 4oz on top and 2.8oz on the bottom to reinforce it (and also to protect the veneer)."
