This board was built with cedar cut into strips and bonded with gorilla glue. The rails were made from ABS drain pipe cut into 1/4 inch strips and bonded to the board with liquid ABS (acetone and ABS). The foot pads were made from 2 layers of floor foam bonded with contact cement. All available from home depot. The board was shaped with a planer and a router mounted on tracks to remove material at the edges of the board. The board was glassed with 6 oz cloth and epoxy. The board has camber but no rocker . Hence the name Flat Bastard. Thanks Doug for the inspiration and humour in your post the chubby girl!
How much of a pita were the rails? I've done epoxy and urethane rails, both are somewhat of a pain, somewhat heavy, and cost more than an ABS pipe and a little acetone... So I am curious, if this is serviceable and cheaper, is it also easy, or a hassle....
ABS drain pipe is light cheap and very strong . I cut it on table saw and bent it using a heat gun to get it to form to the shape of the board. If you put some in acetone and leave it in a sealed jar you will have liquid ABS which you can use as an adhesive/ filler.
