 1934 Solid wood Bellyboard

Surf boards are always in demand and can be made especially attractive if they are painted in bright colors. .A light wood,such as pine or redwood, will not split, if two cleats are mortised flush on the underside. Finish with oil stain and a brightly colored design, with spar varnish over all. The size given is suitable for children who do not weigh over 90 lbs. Larger surf boards along the same lines can be made for adults.
