Super cool to see how in to it you are getting Bass...
Cool looking design. You could make your "wacko lines" look better using a "French curve". In the "old days" (pre CAD), we would use them in mechanical drawing class. You could pick one up in a school supply aisle, or maybe staples, or just use google.
Never heard of that. I'll look into it. I drew that while sitting in my work truck, on my lap. I actually keep a pad of graph paper in the cab of my truck and at home. Sometimes i just see somthing or think of somthing and try and sketch it out real quick before i forget. Im cool with the wacko lines though. I just do it to visually see the shape, make sure my nose and tail widths look right.
And NNYNJ, it's addicting. I have been really busy and was excited to finish Mr. Bs board to get one thing off my plate. Got an idea in my head and boom im foaming at the mouth to do another.
He not only foams at the mouth when he’s excited about something, he sings and jumps around like a kid in Toys R Us !!
SHAKE IT UP BABY!! Yeeeeewwwwww
See!?!?!?! Anyone can do it!
I dunno bout the home depot approach but hey it was less work than I went through
He's obviously a craftsman... but not a shaper. He has all the tools and knows how to use them, but no shaping prowess.
And to think I thought I wasted my money on tools and math. Funny how he didn't discuss how important it was to keep improving your shapes. He seems to be happy with those rails
LOL... He refers to them as, "kinda chunky." He must like his rails like he likes his women. Or men? Who knows... But good for him.
His videos are very cringy.
On a side note, something I will be working on today. This will be a board for me.
Shorter/wider diamond tail template.
Subtle hip out the back.
Blank canvas for your own personal touch.
Over the years I've used several templates from blending curves and they've all been very good. I've built a couple of boards off of this template in the past. For this one I pulled down the 6'4 template. Pulled the PDF file into Adobe Indesign and arranged the sheets into a full sized template of one side of the board. Next I flipped that
horizontally to make a mirror image. Merged the mirror image with the original template to create a PDF of the entire board outline.
Now beings as I'm 6'1 and 50 years old I wanted the board to be a bit bigger. When I printed it I set my print driver to print the file at 105%. The net result will be a board that is 6'7 x 21 3/4. Printed the file using a blueprint machine in my office.
My experience with paper templates is that you can get a lot of variation particularly when you flip it to draw your outline of the second side. The procedure I've outlined here yields a full size template and with a little math you can make the board bigger or smaller to suit your needs. Having both sides as a full template makes the paper less likely to move while drawing the outline.
Blank for this will be a US Blanks 6'9R
Pictures aren't very good but you'll get the idea.
