Not at all, I've been selling plans and kitsets for these boards since 2004 and have been actively encouraging people to build their own.

Steve's board is by no means identical to the Earl either, since both the plan shape and rocker differ from the original.

Im very curious, where does your production add USD $999,3000.00????
I have no idea where you got that figure from, but the price is determined by factors other than materials plus normal labour costs.
