Haha, After debating on buying or building my wife convinced me to just try my luck at building some boards. So here the journey begins. I built my shaping stand and should be ordering my blanks tomorrow. I gonna go down to Harbor Freight tools and pick up a power planer, spoke shave, sure form, hand planer and some other tid bits. Might look into that counter sink router they have, might come in handy on the fin boxes. Anyways heres a few pics of the stand with my 6'6 ocean board sitting in it.
