I really like that yoke. My homemade pads are way to heavy. That pad looks more comfortable too !Cruiser wrote:Hi Jim,
This is a photo of the NWC dish I made to replace the typical big foam blocks, on my solo yoke, that attaches to the seat. This dish only weighs in at a few ounces, much lighter than foam blocks or a hardwood dish.
The idea is to use that sort of lightweight dish, and just put a couple of hardwood rails side to side to carry the actual load, while the dish makes for a comfy carry. The actual rails could be solid pieces or laminated 1/4" pieces, shaped to give flair and maybe please your eye for shape. You may need to go a bit thinner if you want to bend very much (or use steam at 1/4"). Anyway, I am a few days from getting back to the shop and starting mine.
