    Default Silverfish Board Building Contest ARCHIVES

    This is something I have been thinking about for awhile. Searches for the contest threads yield spotty results, likely due to the many title variations used. I ran several searches for 'build-off", "building competition" etc, and compiled the links chronologically. I also chose to use entry threads only. This might not be the best approach, but it is a start. The list is incomplete, and much of the early content is replete with dead photo links. Maybe there is a way to fill in some of the blanks.
    Please add any pertinent info at will. If there are suggestions for how to better organize this content, please share them.... I am a pretty green user, with limited indexing skills....Any number of you might be able to slap a comprehensive list together in short order.
    Here is what we have so far:

    Baskin Robbins has 31 flavors. You must try them all before finding the one you like the best.

    What was your glassing/composite schedule?

    How well did it hold up?

    If I were to chop a board, do you need to re seal the edges? If so, what do you use?

    Not the right place to post this...

    Yes, you need to seal the edges. Polyurethane is the standard, spray or brush on.

    I know I had mixed feelings about posting here since this was really the only recent board building related thread, the general one hasn't seen action in awhile. Thanks though
