Ever since I first saw the beautiful lap joint boomerangs made
Graham, and Dr.
Fred Malmberg, I wanted to make some of my own. There was
even a great
tutorial on making lap joint boomerangs on
the web. Unfortunately, at that time my woodworking skills amounted to
nil and my "workshop" consisted of a Black & Decker Workmate,
some rasps, and some sandpaper.
Since then, I've figured out how to make lap joint boomerangs using a reasonably small set of hand tools; thus, I want to share the following description as a complement to the abovementioned tutorial.
