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?

Tools I have! I've got a bit of everything, compressor is no prob, done a lot of FG work in the past (custom speaker boxes, etc.). It's the edging that I'm most worried about. Was telling the fiancée tonight about your board building and she didn't think I was retarded for wanting to try.

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 !
