    Nice craft, nice lines. well worth restoring. Going by the construction details I would suggest it was built in the 1950's or 1960's ...... before 'stitch & tape' construction became popular. I...

    It is nice to see that ingenuity is alive and well in some people! Cutting boards like that are a good source of plastic - I've used bits from them in several projects.

    What an unhelpful comment!

    The original post actually reads 'cheapish, light and robust' - which is perfectly feasible with paddles for general use.
