Making your own? What type of wood are you laminating? What glue are you using?
Nice! Very nice!
I used Birch and Ash
Now comes the fun part, precision drilling. I guess you'll need to chamfer the holes as well.
What a great project! Good luck!
Is there a weight you're shooting for? did you design it yourself?
Quite a beauty!
Beautiful wood and nice work with the laminations.
Are you planning to use any paint ?
I really like the all wood look of the older wood rackets c1900s.
I recently got a NOS wood racket c1920 that is massive and has like a 5 1/2 grip. Hanging it on the wall as a piece of art.
I actually plan to put an outer wrap of carbon
But I think im going to build another, with some tweaks, knowing what ive learned with this first one.
Very nice and kudos for tackling such an ambitious project!
I assume you using carbon to sturdy it up for hitting ?
Would be nice if there was a translucent carbon or maybe several epoxy over coats that could still show the beautiful wood.
So how is this project going?
