I'm currently building my wife a Kaholo SUP. Well, a few months ago her father died and we were recently asked to come take any of his wood working tools and clear out his wood storage shed. I came home with plenty of heart pine, some Juniper and Cyprus. Then I hit the mother load. 250 boards of 12 foot long 1x14 Cherry thats been in his shop for 20+ years.
My wife would like me to use the cherry to deck the Kaholo. I know it will add some weight compared to the okume, but are there any other issues? How thin should I make the strips? Will the Cherry oxidize under the epoxy like normal?
Are there any blogs or sites you can direct me to where someone used strips to deck their SUP?
