The build-up started with laminating two layers of 5-ply to obtain plyability and strength. I drew the pattern for the board on paper, then transferred it to the “deck” once the glue had cured. Using a jigsaw, I cut the board to the patterned shape, then rounded over all edges with the router. I used sign vinyl as the stencil for the “Selah” (from the Book of Psalms, meaning to stop, look and listen, or stop and reflect) on the bottom side of the deck, then applied stain over the entire bottom, sides, and top edges that griptape would not cover. Once dry, I removed the vinyl to leave the stencil in the raw wood color.
