New Recycler Paipo project...

I always start projects and never seem to reconnect with them till months later. I stripped the glass from the nose of HAARRRRYYYY's old Stewart and templated out one of the Tomb Stone templates on it months ago. Then, a few weeks ago I spent a day ripping wood for cutting boards. I ripped a piece of white cedar I found in the rafters for outside stringers on the paipo randomly during that session. I cut the blank and finally started gluing in the stringers tonight. This is what she looks like so far.

These Recycler projects are fun little projects. I think I'm going to make recycled wood flooring d-fins on this. It should be interesting to see how this one turn out.

Buy Local, Surf Global

I poached this from Eric's blog from the Beach House Classic Board Shop. It's a great little piece about buying locally and the surf industry. Check it out, and please support your local artists and surf shops.

Kara's hubby's cutting board

Some of the rips for cutting boards went into the glue up for my college friend Kara as I said before. I shot a pre-glue-up photo, but forgot to take a post return from the mill shot. Oh well. The guys @ South Jersey Lumbermans hooked it up. It was run through their giant belt sander and flattened out perfectly. Some finish sanding and routing and it came out perfect! This cutting board measures approximately 24" x 18 1/2" x 2". Wow it's a beast, super cool though. The coolest one yet! So far it has 1 coat of butcher block oil on it. I'm adding a few more and then shipping it off to Lancaster.
