Cool board the inlay or marquetry is very suttle. Nice work.

Very nice. How do you veneer your plys together?

My son skates and is burning through a board every other week. Time for him to make his own.

Cool, but can you still do a half pipe with it? LOL

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.

I cut the veneers out on a band saw. And press them together in a vacuum table.

Haven’t had the chance to ride a half pipe, but I have ridden a bowl and it was great. maybe a little wider wheel base.

The marquetry blurred a little more than I’d hope. It looks better in person, but I learned if you want marquetry under sand make it simple and bold.

That takes me back…you don’t see them shaped like that much anymore. Good Job.
