      Here's a picture of your blade, I meant to post this a while ago but I've been busy at work, apologies.
      This is one of my favourite compositions, ayous core, douglas fir, limba, 5.7mm thick and made with hide glue.. Off- , would you say?
      Zebrano, yew and basswood handle.

      Yes, I would agree off- to maybe even off.

      I’m the lucky owner of the above blade, it’s a work of art and an amazing tool for my table tennis.
      The ‘touch’ is impressive and has improved my close game significantly. I would be lost without it and I am about to order a duplicate for my spare blade and to try some new rubbers out.

      Thanks Garry, I've e-mailed you. I've made a lot of blades with this composition, people seem to really like it.
      For anyone who's interested, Garry's blade is the second one on post 246. It's balsa - twarron carbon - ayous - mahogany.

      The easiest way is to remove the handle of an old blade and then use that. Use a flush cut saw to do it and then copy it using a router. You can make a template without removing the handle but that's a bit harder.Alternatively see Ross Leidy's thread on another forum! I also know some people have had them 3D printed or laser cut.

      For all of my templates, I took images of blades from the web, traced them using Inkscape, made sure the dimensions were precisely right for every part of the tracing, and then had them lasercut at Ponoko.com. There was some trial-and-error involved here and my first templates were definitely not as good as my second ones. Things like making sure the template is about 0.3-0.5mm larger than you want because the laser takes about that much material when it cuts, etc are important to consider. I took a variety of different blades from different manufacturers and traced each of them to give me a variety of different designs, both straight and flared handles of different sizes etc.
