"Koobox" was the name given to early hollow-construction surfboards, pioneered by super Waterman and Craftsman, Tom Blake.  Kookbox style surfboards were the norm back in the 1930's.  

We used to have a mahogany plywood kookbox hanging in our PCH store, but we decided to build an updated one for the new Costa Mesa shop.  

This 10'0" Kookbox has an EPS foam core and is skinned with 1/8" Walnut lumber. (Not veneer) then finished with a tongue oil, and a brass drain plug. (Drain plugs were essentially on the true Kookboxes, because they leaked small amounts of water, so after a surf session, you would have to drain the sea water. 

This one is intended as a wall-hanger, but the tongue oil is water-resistant.
