Does anyone have any experience building these? I've shaped a couple alaias and want to move on to something a little more user (rider) friendly. I've been drawing my templates for a while now and am ready to transpose them to full size.

My question is what type of wood should I make the stringer and ribs out of? I used gorilla glue with the alaias, will this work for putting together the frame and laying the deck? I plan on using paulonia, walnut and/or redwood on the deck mainly because that is what I have right now.

Lastly, I plan on making a larger mini simmons but since this is my first one, I'm going to skip the concave throughout and go with a flat bottom.

If you guys have any advice or tips let me know!
