    Making Garbage Cores

    Garbage cores are not magic. They are a simple approach to producing open cell cores with inexpensive materials that are compatible with epoxy resins. There is nothing that limits this to using corrugated paper so if you feel a wild hair coming on.....
    First things first
    Create your board design. It is easy to start with a typical 3/8" flat board design however, for this example, we'll look at producing a more difficult project using multiple thick nesses to produce a contoured core that provides additional strength over the length of the board.
    Material Selection - choose non-waxed paper products. I score my boxes from the UPS stores that get sleeves of cardboard for use for a variety of chores. Hit the dumpster or just ask.
    Whatever you wind up with, run a resin check to make sure you get a good bond.
    Cut multiple strips for the core. I use a mat cutter that can be set for various widths.
    This particular core features 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" strips that will be arranged to corrugate the corrugated core.

    Next, lay out the project dry to make sure of spacing, alignment and overall fit. I have created a cheap-o layout board with 1" increments that can follow the project through to lay up on the mold.

    The pic above with my hand illustrates that sometimes layout is governed by how easy it is to work the form when it winds up on the bench or in the bag later on.
    When the layout appears to be correct, wet the bottom surface cloth out as shown.

    Good idea to choose the surface that will wind up on the mold for the bottom. When you lay your work up, you'll be able to slide the stack onto the mold from the layout board.
    Transfer the dry layout onto the wetted cloth. At this point you'll want to wet out additional elements like the stringers seperately then add them into the layout.

    When arranged, cap the stack with another wetted surface cloth.

    You are now ready to install the stack in the mold. You'll want to be careful at this point especially if you are incorporating extra elements like the stringers as shown along with profile elements that will show up in the finished product.
    Carefully draw down the pressure arranging the stack as you go to make sure alignment is maintained.


    Wait.
    Tap your toes.
    Go off and wait for it to cure.
    ............................................
    Later
    Remove from the mold and check.

    A bit of drip-age at the bottom of the corrugations but otherwise the cells look pretty clear.

    Appears to line up pretty well and feels a bit lighter as well.
    Ogle
    This core is for the new Trashmanian Devil. It features rocker, concave and a corrugated longitudinal oriented bottom surface of the core that should help create flex instead of mush for large humans.
    Tomorrow the core will be shaped and bonded to the deck surface.
    Post
    Be happy to add more details.
    Later
    Brian

    Here is a general multipurpose template for truckholes, dropthrough mount, and cutouts to avoid bite. The cutouts are generous and are designed for 180 mm trucks and 75 mm wheels in the dropthrough configuration. Topmounts require less robust cuts.



    Start here and midasize it.
