    Super work again Nate. Balsa isn't that easy to cut clean as it's so soft and you've got some very clean lines there, great skill.
    It will be interesting to see how the PVA works, I've thought about...

    Great work Nate, beautiful finish. I love the mirror too! Very clever. I presume that there was no warping problems? It can be a problem with different outers.

    I feel the same, I have blades with lower pitch which are faster than blades with a higher pitch. Personally I don't find the frequency test to be that useful. A bounce test gives me some idea of...

    This is a great point bob. When you use ayous with a standard core size you do become limited with what you can do due to the relatively heavy weight. With balsa you can be much more creative and...

    I think, slightly unfairly, balsa has a poor reputation. Previously I've always played ayous or kiri core blades but if you combine balsa with the right materials it can work really well. The weight...

    Blade 1 - I'd suggest a softer medial ply but I think your composition would work. Off minus, crisp feel but with some flex. Koto isn't that hard but I'd recommend limba or something softer: fir or...

    I find two layers of varnish on the outside of the outer ply works well. I then sand it back when glued. I might try cabosil though, good call.
