I spent a long time thinking about what I wanted to build and shape with the agave I am sitting on in the second photo. I finally decided on a 70's style, Lightening Bolt inspired, single-fin, Pipeline gun.
Pre-glass weight: about 9 lbs.
8-0 gun agave, raw and milled ready to glue up
Glued up, ready to template .
Templated blank above, first rail band cut below.
Above: Almost finished shaping. Below: abalone and silver lip clam inlay for logo backing
Fin: Hawaiian koa, Flame maple and ebony
Off to the glasser! Stay tuned for photos of finished board. Aloha,
