7'-2" simm-21 for Bobby "Diamond" Donnelly
I love my Clark Hatachi and my Skil 100, but my favorite shaping tool.....especially for clean work on multiple strigers........my Grandad's razor sharp smoothing plane. Foiling out the tail in this one.
Task-specific, hand-made tools are up there too. I use an adjustable-arc sanding block for clean and symetrical concaves.
This one will get an Ice-blue full tint by Michael Miller.
Fin set: quilted maple over parota. Cheater-coated, ready to laminate in this photo.
