So these are the tools that I used to create the olo. The Dirty Green dumpster bandsaw would have spoilt the artsy fartsy picture and so did not make the shot. Also been doing some D fins with a view to sell them. Will post when the foil is right.

So this project has been wizzing around in my head for a very long time. Probably close to 10 years. I saved a load of very fine grain Douglas Fir floor boards from a dumpster in Johannesburg and have been carting them around ever since. Seemed like a good time to use them or loose them so in 6 and a half days flat this was born. No plans, no measuring tape, no templates. She is ready foe a skin of epoxy and to say that I can't wait to ride her would be understatement of the century. Thanks to Tom W and Tom S.
