Good luck!

Where might I start by ordering a blank, what tools are necessary, etc etc...

Re: 5-0 DIY Vader

Quick update on boards progress... Fully wrapped with - deck: 4,4+Vector net & 4oz patch at standing area. - bottom: 4oz. (yes...prob on thin side...) Had to fix a botched rail lap, so rails have an additional 4oz, which prob works out, as this protects ding prone rails & adds to boards rigidity. We...
