Would you be opposed to letting me watch you work sometime. The whole process is a bit confusing.

You know the old saying, for repair work:

$25/hr flat rate
$50/hr if you call before it's done
$75/hr if you watch

I'm kidding, but if you are serious about making boards I can offer some help. Only do it if you have time and money to burn... (or you are completely obsessed with building things yourself at twice the price).

Looks kick ass Tom. 3 more and people will be wondering why they are paying 800 for other customs. :)

I didn't see it at first, and thought they were blems, but that is your reflection, camera in hand, the street light and 2 powerlines, and a tree line in the reflection, nice.

Yeah that's my reflection of my holding a camera.

It's back on the vacuum table. It's going to be finished today! Whooot!

Josh I am keeping the board! (kidding)

This board has no graphics... I'm still trying to perfect my process. Josh likes stickers anyway :D

Next board gets custom graphics.

Took a nick out of a @#$@#$ rail with my router :mad: @#$$@. But, still working the rails anyway so I can fill it in and it'll be fine. Just pissed me off.

Anyway here are some pics. Rails are not yet shaped.

Tom I feel ya.... well, not literally... unless ya ask nice!
Don't ya hate it when you are routing and the edge gets thinner so your bushing guide slips off and ya cut right into the board.
I have about 5 boards that are 1/2" thinner than they were designed because of this.

Board looks sick!
