Ode To The Shaper: Nocean
Nocean. Agave between two pieces of Paulownia (we love Paulownia at MSS).
- Cut and template to the right curves.
- Glue between two foam slabs.
- Plane the foam and wood together to make one ready-made blank.
I have ridden a few ALL wood Minis and I find them heavy and stiff.
I like the idea more and more of using wood and foam.
I know a lot of guys either lean one way or the other but I think using a combination of these two materials might create the right mixture for an exceptional Mini Simmons.
Next month I’ll be shaping my first chambered Mini via Mark from Crooked Blanks—-we’ll all get some first hand experience (via this blog).
The big question for me is:
Will the chambered Mini approach reduce the weight?
Oh yea, Ode to Nocean for this beautiful shape.
