I was given an old blank this evening while picking up my sons buddy. It was in the rafters of an old shed, pretty haggard and old, wish I knew how old. A lot of dents, gouges and chunks missing. Looks like a cat attacked one rail. Missing a good chunk of the tail. The time worn wounds will steer the final shape which will have a hidden story. On top of that its a clark foam blank, which to those who know, well you know how long I can wax on about diving into that blank with a 10,000 rpm planer. Will I get another Clark foam blank under my planer in my lifetime? For those who dont know, Clark foam is a legacy that closed shop in 2005. So what to shape? Its a fish blank 6' x 24" actually has some rocker, its crazy heavy but I'm used to light eps foam. Its a super green which I think was the first blank I shaped in college but I dont remember it being that heavy. It would be hard to shape a traditional fish out of it, its original intention, due to the big chunk out of the tail. I will have to let this sink in, any suggestions?
