I've been collecting old pre loved boards
for the hand planes I've been making.
This piapo is from one of the old boards.
The original plan was to do a
timber alaia style hard rail with a glass bead.
But, as the shaping progressed it became
obvious that the blank was to thick to do this.
So it has a 50/50 rail all the way through.
First lams on bottom.
I'm doing a Greenough style spoon deck.
That's why I kept the blank as thick as it is.
I've had a roll of carbon lying around
for close to 10 years now.
This seemed like a good project to use some of it on.
I need to keep this thing pretty stiff.
By the time all the foam is removed
there is not going to be much of a structure left.
Hopefully the carbon will keep on keeping on.
Not sure what the weight is.
Carbon warp, S glass weft.
