nice that they are offering the class. Making the center cut is pretty simple, we just clamp on a guide and hit it with the skill saw. I have even added taper to the board by making two cuts at a slight angle. Putting in the inserts takes a little more time. My buddy makes diy pucks that use the factory inserts and a ski screw, so i dont have inserts for the pucks. Next one i make im going to figure a way not to use tnuts on the touring bracket. Im thinking a couple fiberglassing it to the top sheet and using ski screws.
