    If anyone wants to mention Building fairings that would be cool too but mostly I am wondering about a frame for building a seat.

    No worries and that foam idea actually might be a good idea for the frame?

    Personally I would use Cedar if I was forming it out of strips to leave in there or Basswood if I was going to carve it out of a chunk and remove it like a shell. But then I can build pretty much anything out of wood.
