From Scrap Wood to Surfboard Art

For sheer enjoyment value alone, can there be a better way to re-purpose scrap wood than this?  It's something that I have often wanted to try myself as I have chopped up old pallets for kindling.  The results would be nowhere near the artistic or functional level of this craftsman though.  This little film is a superb 'how to' for turning scrap wood into a beautiful surfboard.  If you think that it looks a little misshapen then you are partly right.  This chap specialises in asymmetric surfboard designs that might look a little odd, but make sense in terms of human anatomy and function.  A lot of work goes into making a surfboard in this way, but the results speak for themselves.
