Base Kayak of Western Red Cedar/Atlantic White Cedar. Scales are from Purple Heart, Wenge, Padauk, Willow and Sipo, Laser cut from 1/4" stock (and freed w/Fret Saw), epoxied over curved building form covered w/waxed paper to allow it to be removed and sanded.
My 30+ year old son made this model of my kayak from scraps I had left over. He did it as a surprise, and it took him nearly a year to do. He enlarged a photograph of the cover sheet of plans I got from Nick Shade, and used the same building technique I used to strip the full scale.
