so you glue this together then carve or shape it with ? probably a very sturdy rocker wondering how it holds up to ocean air ? GREAT JOB :<))

Absolutely brilliant. Nice build!

On a side note….the bike in the background looks my first bike. 1966ish schwinn midget sting ray with a Banana seat? That bike brings back memories.
