*Hewey coughs as he blows thw dust off this old thread...*

Been a while since I played with my wood, so thought I'd have a go and take some pics to share

Well for something different I'm going to make an Alaia, which is a traditional Hawaiian surfboard, like the one pictured below.


Alaia's are pretty hard to surf, so Im not even going to bother trying so for that reason I just bought a cheap sheet of butted pine from the local hardware store to make this. It will be for displaying in my tiki room or chucking on the roofrack of an old car (when I get one ).

Im also doing a 4 foot Paipo (basically the bellyboard equivalent of the Alaia), that will be made out of Paulownia wood, which is a much better wood for making a board.

Project start on the Alaia, butted pine plank.


The end of this Alaia gives you a good idea as to the profile and rails on these boards.
