My first go at a sandwich type laminate. rock maple core, brushbox sides with a beach swell. hehe and I'm here to tell you, it's not easy trying to split a 20*100*180mm board with a handsaw!!

The "Alabacore"

Well, look at it this way. It was hard work sawing that board but you also got some exercise in while doing what you love. I really like that frame.

That looks great wombat, I can't believe you managed to cut the boards with a handsaw! Well done!
