Sweet looking board, the boy is going to fly

Great looking outline
Concave through the nose to rolled V through the tail
Final shape and clean up and then cut the rails off and sqaure up.
Totally encapsulated in wood.
All the tools i need to laminate and bend the rail bands onto the board. The old steam iron helps out here.
One each side now.
Last of 8 rail bands on
The emery cloth is great for taking the planed rails and smoothing it all out really quickly and simply as you can get some weight into it. The cloth backing and the grit lasts way longer than any sand paper.
The logo is a rubber stamp and solvent ink StazOn brand from the local stamping / craft shop.
The oil brings out the colour of the Paulownia.

I built this unglassed board for Peter Redmond in New Zealand a couple of years ago. He loves the lanolin finish and has just ordered a longboard for him to take back to the UK in a few months time. It still looks like new after many a surf. Not having to wax it certainly helps.
