    Mate that looks amazing. Time to sort yourself a logo and get selling.

    Cheers for the width info. Hoped as much as I have a bit of 15" marine ply. Nice width.

    I'm gonna pop out something similar. Planning to make a copy of MY LAST ONE as well as a more traditional bellyboard. Think I might try the old Stung oil out too.

    How does the cedar compare to Pawlonia Matt?

    PS Gonna make the meet? Be great to see these in the apres matmeet wood fest.

    The cedars good to work with, I still sort of prefer the paulownia butI havent finished this yet. This cedar is kiln dried so its not that much heavier. Smells amazing though, one thing Ive noticed is that the dust has a slight burny/peppery feel on the eyes and skin?

    Was going to do a single concave but that grain kind of suggests a double?

    Cracking Matt, love the shapes and grain of that cedar board. How they ride.

    I'll check out my local discount DIY store to see if they have any tung oil on special.

    You got to use mask and eye protection for all sanding as it can be a killer. don't forget the quickest way for a chemical to get in your body is via your eyes.

    I recommend this for sanding
