well so this is my second board

plan ... this time I was inspired with Strech shape which I like, but this board is shorter - 4'8" / 20" / 2"
I design my shapes in PC in Adobe Illustrator where I can perfectly control all curves and then print them in 1:1 scale on laser printer

just simple hand shaping - no powertools this time - its quiet and clean
I put big cardbox (from some ikea stuff) on shaping rack to catch all EPS mess so it don't fall on someones others balcony

Please tell us it hasn't been sitting this entire time, and in fact you have been ridin' it and now you're just catching up the thread?

What was your process for the veneer? - thx

Sorry it was sitting this entire time

I glued veneer with vacu hope it will keep for a while.
First time airbrushing first time vacu bagging its a thrill

Wow, that sucks. At least you're working on it again.
I must say, this thread, along with your 1st build thread were great sources of information and inspiration for my build, so it'll be great to see this board get finished.

Looks good Petr, I like the veneer look. Some balsa or mahogany and maybe some walnut would look cool as hell also. Hmmm ideas?

yea its freaky gloss finish ... heh why not, just for fun
And because it works great with wood, otherwise I will ended with regular matt finish. I really enjoy waterdrops runing zigzag over my teak veneer when I surf

Man, that really looks great! Kind of hated dulling the sheen with some wax I bet!
