Centerboard

I made the centerboard blank today.  I got some cedar from Lowe's.  I pick through the pile and find the ones with as few blemishes a possible.  I got lucky and found two 8 foot x 8 inch slabs.  I cut one in half then ripped it on the table saw about 1 3/16 inch wide.  Then I glued the whole thing together, let it dry, and ran it though the surface planer.  I'll find a NACA profile that fits and shape the blade this weekend.  I also found another gem.  I found the original 1/4 rounds that backed up the splash board.  They were in the pile of trash that accumulated on the floor of the shed.  I cleaned house today and there they were.  I'll clean them up and reuse them.
