Then its 800 grit then 2000 grit, then rubbing compound then polishing compound takes me a good 4 hours to do both sides. http://WWW.MTHBOARDS.COM



really nice board, I just started making a cedar board
how do you make you rocker hold with the full glass boards?
do you put a strip of glass running the whole lenght but just in the middle while holding the sides to the rocker table with clamps? if so, do you glass over the strip after?

second question, how much more rocker do you put in ceder to get the rocker you want? for example, do you glass witha 2 inch rocker to get a one inch rocker once you unclamp it?
thx

I use either a small nail with no head and glass the top only to get the rocker then pop it off through the bottom then just glass the bottom without the board in the rocker.
i have also glassed the top and waited until the epoxy was not sticky anymore but still stretchable and the just put it on the rocker and clamped it down.
