Swirled Fish Handplane
This double concave, glossy, fish-shaped handplane is a stunning, performance bodysurfer. The primary wood comes from cedar offcuts from Knotty Hole Woodworks cabinet shop in Palo Alto, California. The swirls are redwood floorboards from the Schwann mansion floorboards milled in the 1890s, cherry and purple heart offcuts from a Santa Cruz cabinet shop and Indian rosewood from the Santa Cruz Guitar Company.
This handplane uses Entropy Super Sap Epoxy bio-resin which is made using mostly tree sap. The hand strap is nylon and adjustable. It is covered with offcuts from O'Neill Wetsuit product development, and the wood is shaped with our unique, ergonomic hand fit. The hardware is solid brass. As with all Ventana handplanes, this one floats so you can easily pass it between friends in the waves.
You only need a single handplane on your leading arm for a great ride every time! This is a terrific conversation piece in your home and will slice you across the face of any sized surf.
