    my Hand plane

    Post  stu on Sun Nov 27, 2011 8:27 am

    This one I shaped for France and it worked realy well, the sting is now finished and I will post but unused as yet.
    I love hand planes your wave count is so high also when you get in the water people dont know how to take you,then you see people coming out and trying to bodysurf,but like matting it does have a techinacal side and one hell of a work out.

    can't do a template but here are the sizes
    Length 15",fish up from tail 1 1/2",width @ 2" increments from tail, 2" at tail,3",3 1/2",3 3/4",4",3 71/8,3 1/2,2"
    these are all approx but should give you the outline
    Bottom rolled nose for the first 6" then down into double concave.
    Hope it works out
    Cheers
