In the shaping bay

 I just had Peter Mo install the fin boxes in these boards for me and now they are ready to be finished.I have just tidied up the laminated rails and now they need to be shaped.

 The bar bell weight is great for holding the board ibn place so that you have both hands free to control the hand plane
 First up I foil the rails to the board shape so that it is nice and even all round
 Then I start on the bottom shape of the rail as this is the important area at the end of the day
 Set it on rail and bring the top down to foil it all out slowly.
The wall lights help cast a shadow so that you can see the flow of you lines. This is the first bevel in bringing the rail down.
 Some work on the nose to blend it all in
Starting to come together. This is a 5ft 2" x 22"Hydro Simmons , the one on the left is a 5ft 1" x 22 1/2" Simmons and a 5ft 6" x 19" Hydro Simmons
