hollow wooden mini simmons
Hi Jesse, Don’t know if you remember, but…..
About a year ago I flicked you an email saying that
I was going to have a crack at building
a H.W.S. (hollow wooden surfboard) mini sim.
You were kind enough to flick me
through a template of your mini sim deluxe.
Well I’m just about finished the thing. It’s taken
a while but has been so fun getting down the shed
and chipping away a little bit at a time.
**outline looks pretty neat**
I’ve attached some photos of it pre and post sealer coat.
I have started with a tinted lam on the bottom which turned out ok.
I love the colour work that you have done so that inspired me to give a tint a crack.
**foil looks pretty good**
Didn’t end up dark enough but that ok. Still yet to do the top lam and
I’ve hand foiled some fins that I will have to attach.
Still plenty of work to do but I just wanted to send through an
**rails look pretty good**
email and say thanks – I really appreciated your generosity
and the work you do is top notch.
All the best mate
