Haha i thought of that but figured it might make the board squirrelly lol
See now that's funny shit!
I do like this veneer better than the light/dark lines. Looks more like an acoustic guitar or something. I'd be so tempted to play with various topsheets, CF, kevlar, zylon (Virus is doing that now), etc. You're building powder boards of course, but I'm thinking a CF/Zylon layer system would create some great pop and increase durability.
I've said it 1,000 times but I gotta copy you and start trying to build boards!
