Re: Neb Powshape

Thanks Chris! I modified some snips and that works best for me currently. I just need to take the time and then I can get them pretty good.

Re: Neb Powshape

The binding inserts on my first 2 boards were laughably far from ideal. I asked a friend with a CNC machine to make me a jig. I think my next board should line up much better.

Re: Neb Powshape

Thanks Hannes! Yeah, I’m totally hooked now and really enjoying it. I made another board last weekend but I went a bit overboard on the carbon... I think I learned something? The board is too stiff and edge high. When it cooled down I felt like it was cupping visibly. I put a straight edge on the ba...

Re: Neb Powshape

The next step was to get the cores down to the right thickness. I made an adjustable planer bed and used double stick tape to attach the core. A friend had a wide enough planer for my 35cm wide core so I traded him some beers. A2988D40-CF39-486A-B78F-F6A4094B820E.jpeg 6F1C8C45-0670-49EF-97D5-537817E...

Re: Connecting two pieces of P-Tex

I use packing tape. It seems to work well but I have only made one board.

Neb Powshape

Hey Builders, I made my first board a few weeks ago and I can’t believe how good it rides! It’s all thanks to you guys and the heaps of great info you’ve shared. I went for a vacuum bagged board with cap construction to start and now i’m working on sandwich/sidewall construction for the second one. ...
