Taking a break on the Mediterranean shoresπŸ–οΈπŸ›©οΈ

" The gathering" of raw wood , glassless boards all finished in lanolin. Paulownia vacuum bagged over EPS core with polyurethan glue. Light , strong and no need for wax as the lanolin is very sticky once it hits salt water. Simple construction with a different outcome. About as "green" as you can build a board as far as I know.The only resin holds the fin bxes in. I have boards out there that are 5 years old and look like new. You only need to paint the lanolin on the surface every now and then.

Just having a lil fun...
I've been getting #inspired by the atomic-streamliner era of automotive design and thought it might be fun to explore some of the #wings and #fins that were so prominent....
Just for fun I also added some #jets in the deck (it's facing nose toward you, deck is up).
Does anyone remember doing that to your #surfboard ?
We used to drill angled holes with a hole saw then we would bond in pieces of pvc pipe. We would position them in front of the fins and it was supposed to aerate the water and cause less drag and be faster.
Total silliness!
Idk if I'll glass this one but it was fun to #sculpt!

It is always nice to take a shot of the finished board. All the the pieces have come together and from the lumps of wood and glue comes a sleek surf craft. 5ft 8" x 19 1/2" x 2 3/4" EPS core , 5mm deck skin and 4mm bottom in Paulownia finished in Lanolin. My Hydro V design. Single concave through the nose to a double concave and lots of V out through the tail. All held in place with a rail chine. In wood all those contoures just flow and evolve so sweetly.#surfboardsbygrantnewby #EPSΒ  #MarkoFoamBlanks #glassless #greensurfboardΒ  #lanolin #lanotec #Paulownia #sustainable#woodensurfboardΒ  #woodsurfboard #surfboard #morningwood #GoldCoastΒ  #Queensland #Australia

Porque no siempre uso lentes 😎 #NoGlasses #Glassless #instagood

6ft 2" single fin completed all the wood work in the garage and now off to have the finbox fitted before final rail shaping and final sanding. #surfboardsbygrantnewby # EPSΒ  #MarkoFoamBlanks #glassless #greensurfboardΒ  #lanolin #lanotec #Paulownia #woodensurfboardΒ  #woodenboard #inthegarage #GoldCoastΒ  #Queensland #Australia #Currumbin

Refreshed! #selfie #glassless

It is great to get those last rail bands glued on so you can sharpen up the hand planes and trim all the excess Paulownia off. So I glued the last two pieces of the nose block on this morning and tonight I trimmed and cleaned it al up. Taped off the bottom and marked out where the fin boxes will go. I hope to get these in soon and then some time in the shaping bay to shape the rails. The good bit. I'll keep you posted.Β  #surfboardsbygrantnewby # EPSΒ  #MarkoFoamBlanks #glassless #greensurfboardΒ  #lanolin #lanotec #Paulownia #woodensurfboard #GoldCoastΒ  #Queensland #Australia #inthegarage

-Opting out of glass-

This oil painting has such a beautiful texture, the customer decided to keep it glassless.
When deciding between glass types there are plenty of options. There's reflective glass and there's museum glass(non-reflective), and occasionally, customers will choose glassless. By choosing a glassless frame, the piece becomes more interactive to the point that the viewer can reach in and touch the piece (only when welcome!). Would you go glassless?
