We still have one more sanding to do--- but this is the finished board.
Your wood is amazing. Thank you.
We used some redwood for the nose and tail.
I shot the photo after dark, when we finished, sorry about the lighting.
We appreciate all your efforts to help us.
We never would have gotten there without your clear, detailed DVD, your patience with our questions and perfect wood.

Thanks for sending the DVD express post to me yesterday (How to Make a Classic Balsa Wood Surfboard). It has convinced me that this is the project I really want to undertake.
