Re: how low can you go ??

I think the wood Zob is using is called Durakore. End grain balsa wood with thin hardwood veneer laminated on top and bottom. ATL Composites is the only place in the US i have seen it advertised. I think it might be less expensive to laminate some pieces up yourself.

Re: Some boards I made

Carbon is not always definitively better than fiberglass. Carbon is much stiffer than glass, to the point where it will break before it bends. Glass does not have as much tensile strength but handles impacts better. Kevlar is more impact resistant an glass or carbon with tensile strength in between ...

Re: First board finished

Yes all of it is just tinted resin. I laid it all up with yellow and then drizzled a little red on and spread it out. didn't work out exactly how I was hoping, better knowledge for next time though. :) Thanks.

Slowly getting my first board done

Hey everyone I have been working on my first board. It's 160 x 48, 3 layers of 1/8 inch Okoume marine plywood, and I don't have a precise scale to weight it on but feels like it weighs as much if not more than my Spleene rip 134 already. I was originally planning on doing 3 layers of 3.6 oz e glass ...

How much glass??

I've been reading a ton of posts and can't exactly figure out how much fiberglass people use compared to the type of core and the thickness of the core.
