I finally got my new vacuum press in action and started pumpin’ out the longboards. They are a 7 ply maple core with 2 cross grain and 5 long grain plies. The 8th an 9th layer are more decretive veneers. (Japanese Ash, Lovoa, Claro Walnut burl, quilted maple, and bubinga). In stead of grip tape, I use silica sand mixed in with poly for a nice clear grip.
I am trying to start a custom longboard company. This is the first time I’ve tried to sell my woodwork. Please visit TR Custom Longboards on facebook if you know someone who may be interested. Wish me luck!
