laminated belly board

This is the stuff of childhood memories: cornish splinters in your midriff from a roughed-up board, crudely bent from low-grade plywood, but a huge smile on your face. I wanted to revisit those memories but with a more refined board. This is a sandwich of afromosia veneer and cork, vacuum laminated over a custom-made former, hand shaped and finished with Danish oil. All the smiles but none of the splinters.
