Saw the fin set up thread and thought this would be a funny juxtapose. Fresh out the oven, right before I cut 'em out. 30 layers of 4oz, 6 different colors counting the swirl, each color 5 layers thick. Haven't finished foiling them yet; need a new grinder disc, might have more pics then.
"Template" is giving me far too much credit. I rough traced 4 outlines from the left and rights off a set of k-grip carbon lite(s), then reduced 2 of them about a 1/4" on all sides for trailers. Why? Why not, I leave precision and the science of surfboard making to the experts. I just try to have some fun. Cut those out with a jigsaw and started grinding away until I realized my disc was pretty worn down. I do it by eye man and don't worry too hard about how they end up, as long as they're pretty smooth and not too wonky. Just a way to kill some time, the waves were shot on Saturday.
That is really cool. Definately post a pic when you are done, interested to see how that turns out. What are you using as a binding agent, just resin or something else?
Just poly resin, let dry, sand in between layers, more fiberglass, more resin. Rinse and repeat. Cut out fins, apply grinder and elbow grease. Wear out an old grinder disc, find out it's the last one, quit in disgust until the next time there's no surf (luckily few and far between), open beer, pull out bar-b-que, apply charcoal, lighter fluid, more lighter fluid, more lighter fluid. Apply flame. Wipe away ashes of eyebrows, apply steaks. Repeat until the desired effect has been achieved.
