    Default Finally building again

    I still rode the deck I build for the 2013 board building competition, until I drove over it with my car. Finally boardless again, time to build a new one!

    I designed a nice deck in rhino. Wheel wells,, bit of rocker, small kicktails, easy concave, this should be a fun board to ride.


    Because I have my own cnc machine now, I can make my own moulds.
    Cam:




    First I milled the rough shape, followed by some finishing today. Unfortunately The I milled a bit too rough , so the epoxy didn't penetrate deep enough for the fine milling, so the surface isn't hard everywhere. nothing an extra coat of epoxy can't fix





    So next up will be to finish the mould, and lay up the board. It will be a glassfibre composite construction, with urethane rails. No carbon fibre this time for ease of construction and lack of dampening qualities. I intend to use a new core material which I hope has great characteristics for longboards.

    Updates will follow as work progresses!
