A Blast from the Past

I'm not very nostalgic about most things from the past. So when a customer showed up with this Clark Foam 7'11"R blank I raised my eyebrow. He figures he had it stashed in the rafters for about 8 or 10 years. Funny thing was, once I blew all the dust and dirt off and took my planer to it, the foam was nice and white with a real good firmness to it. I almost forgot how much I really liked shaping the "R" series blanks. The blank's foils and proportions were a hand shaper's dream.
