Hey Zippy, sorry about the link, I'm not sure why it didn't work. That is a tapered balsa stringer specially ordered from US Blanks. It tapers from either 1" or 3/4" at the top to 1/8" at the tail (I ordered them so long ago I can't really remember. It's such a pleasure to shape and looks really cool on the end product.
ihatelongboarders, I apologize if I offended you, I just figured there'd be some cool people on this forum who would like to see some of my work and share my passion.
motion, I plan on having demos in the near future. PM me if you're really interested and I'd be happy to work something out.
