Some vision of me shaping using a Skil 100 planer on its side to blend

Some vision of me shaping using a Skil 100 planer on its side to blend the rounded square tail & the bump wing area of the plan shape into the outline. The cutting blade lever is on the front shoe of the planer & I’m adjusting the depth of cut by slightly moving it as I go around the rail. A lot of my computer cut pre shapes come with wide chopped off Square tails. This gives me the option of turning it into a Rounded Square, Round Pin or Swallow Tail. I learnt this method of cleaning up Plan shape outlines from Dick Brewer in the late 70’s . It can also be done with a Sureform & or hard sanding blocks. Prior to planing I always double check the Blanks position on the stands.. To catch the edge of the stand with the cutting blades is a scary thought !!! @burfordblanks @skil100 @dick_brewer @robin_prodanovich @kazumasurfboardshawaii @lowenshaper @1_da_shapes @surfview @surfboardempire @surfectionbyron #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardsshapes #markrichardsshaping #skil100 #skil100planer #mrbushranger #mrbushranger3 #mrbushranger3model
