Handplane for K.D.

I just finished this one for my good buddy, Kevin Dotson.
It has a slightly kicked nose, rolled on the bottom, which blends into a subtle, single-concave bottom with hard downrail trailing edges. 
Woods: Old-growth redwood, curly redwood with maple pinlines. 
Have fun Kev.

8.5, Frye Template, Marine Ply Box fin

This one is for Phil Ward, Marketing Director, Oakley South Pacific.  It will be steering an 11-0 glider that Larmo recently shaped for him.

Aloha Phil!
