A source of 0.5mm veneers! Problem is they're in Australia.

This is not a problem if you live in Australia. (Oh, hang on - I forgot Australia doesn't exist! Silly me.)

Yeah, when it comes to buying things, there are a couple of items or materials that make me envy Australians (who apparently DO exist even if Australia doesn't.. :lol: ) but then I remember that for a lot of other things Australia happens to be at the far end of a very long supply chain... :lol:

Good grief. That is blatant. Stealing photos is one thing, this is a blatant copy-and-paste, text and all. Weird... wonder why he did it.

Blade: MIZUNO Fortius FT
FH: MIZUNO T48
BH: MIZUNO T45
Hi, so i was just finished reading the whole 31 pages and just joined the forum to post this.

Any of you guys accepting a custom blade making, and discussion in the process (i know nothing of wood other than those been posted on the internet about blade composition)? I went to Ross' site and PMed him already, and waiting for his reply as of this moment, so i think, why not asking the other members here since i read that lots of you guys creates your own paddle, just like Bobpuls and others.

The finished blade would be shipped internationally, so we will need to discuss the cost also from the scratch.

So i was thinking a 7-ply blade
1-Koto, 0.7
2-Soft carbon (suggestion? i read Ross used Ipe to achieve this), 0.4
3-Ayous, 0.7
4-Kiri, 2
5-Ayous, 0.7
6-Hinoki, 0.4
7-Mahogany, 0.7

Yes i read that using different composition would increase the difficulty of the making since it might bent, and if it's really not possible then i will need to change the composition to be 1-2-3-4-3-2-1 (refer to the 7 ply mentioned above). And, counting the weight is not on my forte, a bit confused on that part. From my composition, it's already 5.6mm thick without glue, so with glue on, around 6.3mm?

By this composition, could you guys estimate the feeling it would be?

Discussion and/or suggestion would be awesome.

Cheers,
PR

If you use thin epoxy and use a couple of very stiff flat plates to sandwich the blade as it cures you shouldn't have any warpage problems. If you use any sort of water based glue, though.. the thin veneers will roll up into a taco when they get wet on one side.

The cut and paste of someone else's post from a different forum has occurred a few times now. It is probably a bot, seeking to establish credibility.

I freely admit I'm totally confused by this suggested composition. Ignoring the asymmetry for a moment, what are you trying to achieve with layers 4 to 7? Why would you layer Kiri (an excellent mid-ply) with Ayous-Hinoki-Mahogany? Why stick Hinoki as a medial ply? Why Hinoki in .4mm? What do you expect it to achieve? Why layer it with another soft timber in Ayous, which is also generally used as an outer ply? Regardless of composition, a seven ply blade is going to be stiff and I'm struggling to see how two soft layers below the surface of a thicker, harder layer are going to have any significant influence. What is your thinking here?

I had tried different blades, and from what i tried, i really prefer a stiff outer ply rather than a soft outer ply.. So by putting the soft in the inner part, i was hoping i could get the vibration from the inner ply.. And layer 4-7 should be the backhand side by the way..

Since i'm not that expert in wood characteristic, though i have read on some forums, that's why i'm seeking for advice on this matter also from those who knows more.

Kinda curious about the "lpe" and how you're going to get 0.4mm hinoki.
