Copper Pig WoodworkingThis fish-shaped handplane is part of our Ventana Handplane Artist Project collection. It's a performance, bodysurfing art-piece that features brass inlays created by the inimitable, Copper Pig Woodworking (AKA Corn Meal Sea Urchin).

Includes Free US Shipping!

Copper Pig Woodworking features the creations of Paul Jasper, Ph.D.. Paul creates functional art and design translated through wood in his Framingham, Massachusetts workshop which is located 34,687 miles away from Ventana. The brass octopus Paul created for our handplane is based on our Ventanangle t-shirt design by Tim Honeycutt. Paul used GRS Tools and a Knew Concepts fret saw to cut out the octopus and our logo on the top side.

The wood is reclaimed redwood that was ebonized by Paul. We glassed it with Entropy Resins, a bio-based epoxy, and Aerialite Surf Glass. The hand strap is nylon and adjustable. It is covered with neoprene from a Buell Wetsuit, 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.

It comes with a free cinch sack made by Sagebrush Boardbags from coffee bags and remnant fabrics.

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.

Shaped, finished, and designed in Santa Cruz, California by master artisan, Martijn Stiphout
