You cant make a board with the timber only, its not strong enough, stiff enough or impact resistant enough...

Ditto Steve - I was thinking the same thing a couple of months back - what happened to all the enterprising young lads turning their hands to board building?!

Geez this place is ghost town these days...

I have heaps of board building materials still left over which I would love to see being used for boards.

Im even of thinking of doing board building packs which would include all the necessary materials to construct a board exactly the same as an FP, including some extruded polystyrene foam to make a mold with. All you would need is your own epoxy. I havent worked it out just yet but it would most likely be around the $100 mark shipped to your door

Would anyone be interested in something like this? I Would need to have at least 5 people interested to make it worth me doing.

Other than that if you want some other materials hit me up

Just letting everyone know that it doesn't have clear coat on in the pic... :)

Comment by Ben Rainford on December 21, 2013 at 19:12

HEY EVERYONE!!!!!
Ok, so like i said i was building a nice cruiser and its turned out pretty cool, to be honest I'm more in to downhill, but i thought it would be cool to have one around, I'm still not sure what trucks to use though. I just gave it a clear coat with a dark stripe on the bottom, will post some pictures when its all done!!!!!
