all the basics are here

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/boardbuilding/

column A
plywood, cedar, pawlonia, balsa, divinicell, airex, nomex

column B
e-glass, s-glass, carbon, formica

column C
epoxy, polyester


pick one from column A
one from column B
one from column C


easy is a good place to start, but you still need to choose
cost
time (number of intermediate steps)
weight

in general, none of the steps are difficult, but there are some specialized
tools that you should consider like:
vacuum baging equipement and a rocker table
they are not manditory, but you still need to choose.


the rest is a hand saw, drill and lots of sand-paper.
