Vendia is not only good for Hulls and Interiors, also oar blades for example can be made easily from it. Light and durable, and very pretty on top of that. These blades were made from 6 mm Vendia pine planks at "de boobouwschool" in Holland, one of the oldest and best known boat building schools in Europe. Bert van Baar, one of the teachers at the school was not only happy about the look and feel of Vendia, but also loved the smell. The sliced veneers take varnish very well, as you can see in this picture.
