Honeycomb main body made with Fusion 360. Made from balsa it will weigh barely over 1 pound. The top and bottom skin and fins, all made from ironwood, plus the glue, will add approximately 3.5 pounds, giving a total weight that’s comparable to a modern high performance shortboard. Using oak instead would reduce this added weight by nearly half while still using a wood that’s very hard.
