I have been asked to build a wooden SUP to go to Haris Zambarloukos a cinematographer in London.He wants an 8ft x 28" SUP at 100 litres. It has been a great project to work on. Here are a few progress shots.
This is the VH grade EPS blank that I have had custom hot fired the outline and then Simon at Dolphin Surf Craft has cut the top and bottom on his APS3000 machine
The line down the middle is a glue line as the blank got hot wired in two pieces.
Here I have glued the first 3mm rail band of Paulownia around the outside and foiled it to the blank. Ready to mark up and cut out the top and bottom skins 4mm deck and 3mm bottom.
In the bag for two hours to let the glue go off.
Keeping it simple.
Fresh out of the bag and ready to be tidied up.
All cleaned up and ready to scribe the rail bands
Rail bands cut from 5mm Paulownia a little over size to do the job.
First rail bands on and we are underway
After 2 rail bands I then cut the double diamond tail and start the laminates there.
After I get the four laminates on all the tail section I then start to do the last 2 rail bands
