Line & Paper is the independent design studio of Stephanie Rapisardo. She has a life-long passion for design, a background in Fine Arts, and inspiration from 15 years in the field of Early Childhood Education.

She draws stunning, custom graphite portraits and creates gorgeous signs and murals. Her design and lettering work is beautiful, as well, and we’re honored to have examples of both on this Ventana handplane.
The wood is spruce from Santa Cruz Guitar Company production offcuts. We glassed it with Entropy Resins, a bio-based epoxy, and Aerialite Surf Glass. The hand strap is nylon and adjustable. It is covered with neoprene from a Buell Wetsuit, and the wood is shaped with our unique, ergonomic hand fit. The hardware is solid brass. As with all Ventana handplanes, this one floats so you can easily pass it between friends in the waves.
It comes with a free cinch sack made by Sagebrush Boardbags from coffee bags and remnant fabrics.
