Now i'm using solid poplar wood and it is going to be a 42 in long by 8 in wide by 3/4 in thick and i will make a concave with either a hand planer or table saw or both. This will not be a serious everyday rider but more of a art peice as i will be making it as a art project and wood shop project and will ride it till i get the proper material to make a nice board.
usually to get the concave/camber with wood it is done with steaming and glue up on a jig and will also depend on the cut of the wood...face vs qtr sawn. Most decks are a glue up epoxy lam that is probably done with a press/jig or a vacume clamp/jig.


ahhh...did you notice this ^ ...not shaping with planer or table saw
