I use 245g/m2 carbon and 3 layers 165g/m2 glass each side.
simple no concave rocker- use a sheet of Polycarbonate plastic 5mm and screw in down to wood stringers with the right rocker cut into them. I actually screww the stringers to a table and use spacers under th stringers to make the rocker.
- 18mm concave over 34cm width. Table is 60cm wide, 4mm MDF with glass expoxy layer.

You can also do this with a rocker.
