Thanks Chris, I am considering shifting all my boards to the scrap veneer style since I am getting so much great feedback.

I noticed they used staples to keep the plastic sidewalls on. Anyone else do that? I know sidewalls can be difficult to attach.

I use staples all the time. Use 6mm staples and than flip it over and grind off the tips of the staples at the tips/tail. works like a charm. I wish I could find some 2mm staples but I haven't had any luck so far.
