Mini Wood in Ozzy Land
Ozzy Land. I have been thinking a lot about wood lately.
Seems to keep coming up.
In the mags, in my mind, with my bros.
I like wood and I like the idea of Minis made from wood.
There is that whole flex argument with wood, but how much flex do you need from a Mini Simmons.
It seems to me the perfect shape for using wood.
I came across the work of Mr. Grey, a furniture maker and hollow wood surfboard shaper. He uses a mix of Western Red Cedar, Balsa and Paulownia. He also glasses with epoxy resin which he states “has less volatile organic compounds (VOC) than polyester and is 30% stronger.”
Here is a beautiful example of a 5’6″ Mini Simmons by Mr Grey in Ozzy land.
- Paulownia and red cedar
- Hull entry blending to rolled V
- Blending into channels
