Even if that does not sound that intersting to you (as I’m not an active member but an active lurker of you BBoard) but I’m about to move to a new house.
That will be the first one we buy…
And I have a proper shaperoom in that new house in wich I made an horizontal floor and cupboards allaround. I also put some lights on both sides, fluo tubes and UV tubes to cure uv resin.
I just inaugurated the shaperoom during the week end but I didn’t even move in the house.
Well, the purpose of the shaping week end was to create a 6’0" x 21" x 2"1/2 egg.
A friend of mine who once tried to shape an 8 footer wanted me to coach him as he really messed up with his first try.
The part he was the most afraid of was to laminate the board.
So, I helped him with shaping (I did the trickiest parts such as rails and concave under the nose) and did all the lamination.
The board looks good and will probably be fun to ride.
Rails are just a bit boxy, the deck is almost a flat deck, ther is a spoon under the nose and a slight V under the tail.
Drawing the outline:
The outlined blank (the blank may look strange to you… it’s not a clark but a surfoam, french made… there are not as many choices so, if you want a short and wide board, you have to pick a longer blank, not a 6’2"C… too bad… but really cheaper):
Ready to go:
The nose’s spoon:
The finished blank:
Lamination in process:
Putting the logo on:
Railing (I hate doing that :cussing: ):
Now, the board has just to be sanded, glossed and surfed.
