boomerang dojo with todd and sons

A quick boomerang project with todd and his two sons ryan and grant - these were made from some mystery wood scraps; pretty light weight. half-lap joints and then a rough spokeshave shaping of an airfoil was sketched out. See on the unshaped one LE for "Leading Edge" and "TE" for "Trailing Edge".

The models below are meant to be thrown right handed, grasping with your thumb and index finger the lower right blade in the picture, with a slight bank off of vertical; snapping motion of the wrist. they actually work!

too bad i forgot the camera to take some footage of flying them down at the local park. alack some spear/sword making concluded shop time for the day
