You can use carbon instead of glass top and bottom and run a clear top sheet though
Yeah pardon me, the current board has a carbon top layer (and FG below that, then a wood core) and THEN a clear topsheet.

I keep looking at your setup and looking at my garage and seeing how I could make it work. What's the most expensive part of the jig?

Don't take this the wrong way but I think we all assume that there is at least a little something wrong with her upstairs :P

Are those blue hoses how you pumped the Guiness into your mold? It gave the board a beautiful brown finish. Nice stuff.

Here is a pic of it after rough cut out. Big taper on this board.
Ah, very nice. Excellent placement of the veneer's grains on the rough cut out (from nose to tail). I was seeing it the same way out of the press. Big taper indeed!

December 15 cant get here soon enough!

I cant wait to hear how the square nose boards ride. Any particular reason you did the square nose with a round tail vs. swallow? Have you considered just a flat profile like Venture does with their pow boards?

Please put me on the waiting list for a board !
