Where it all started, drawing it out on CAD (thanks Dad!)

The CNC cut template

Channel routed in the core for pouring 360 degree urethane sidewalls

urethane sidewalls poured into the channel

Sintered base laying over the profiled core

You can see the camber profile here. Rocker between the feet and camber outside with a big rocker nose

#1 core with veneer top sheet

some more veneers I made for top sheets

Testing the press with 60psi in it

The next pics will either be a finished board or a massive fail LOL
Great thread!! How did this board turn out?
