been thinking about how they go together, along with how Bert taught us to do the D-cell vacuumed board. The part that I have the hardest time mind-shaping is the balsa rails, especially since there would necessarily be so much waste (wasted $) involved with cutting rocker into them…
What if you were to the bottom with balsa in the style shown by Bert on the d-cell board, along with the simultaneous lay-up of the rails… But instead of the rails being solid strips of balsa (layers and layers of money!), make just the rails of D-cell, and the bottom and deck skins of balsa.
If a board skinned entirely with D-cell will ride well, and a fully balsa-skinned one is worlds better, then what if you just take the balsa rails out of the equation and replace them with D-cell?
this was my brainstorm for the day, and as soon as I have the time, I will try it. It would make the balsa part very nearly affordable.
