Yes sir! First time trying it. Saw the baguette snowboard guys doing it and Desmond! figured I’d try! 2.5mm and 4mm I found at local hardware store for $5 a sheet 24�x24�. Common carpet underlay! Perfect thicknesses to work around! Easy to cut too. Might be more prone to gauging on impacts, but I guess I’ll find out. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again....we only deep fresh around here🤥

It’s 12� fully inflated. Lays 19� across when flat. I bought it in Quebec , Canada. Can’t remeber the business name? Figured it would press 3D shapes with no cattrack and an appropriate mold, but I never got there yet🙄

Nice. Hows the weight compared to a non basalt board?


Btw. Your thread has 100k+ views! Respect :)

Not as light as a full carbon stick, but the paulownia made the core soft as a wet noodle. I should have left it thicker, which is why I added the full layer of UNI in there!

looks great
Did you build the cores or buy them?
I had a guy on instagram trying to sell me paulownia or paulownia bamboo cores out of china recently.

Made it. Bought a few pieces. Light as shit, but complete garbage wood. Like 4-7 grains an inch. I was on “light train� for a while� but I’m over it! I’m just use red cedar if I need to shake weight. If it was cheap and you didn’t need to buy a few cubic meters min. It’s worth trying. The industry uses it because it’s light and cheap and already in china

2780grams is still a light board. Did it come out quite flexible though? Did you seal the core beforehand to try to stop the paulownia soaking up a heap of resin?

I usually like a board for myself to be about 2900 grams so it still rides solid. Surprised you dont use a lot of red cedar as it must be so easy to get over your way.
We used to have heaps of Paulownia plantations over here but they all went bust.

Its a great looking board. I llike the basic black with the leaf, goes well with the natural sidewalls.

didn't seal! and ya it sucked up a butt load of resin. I could literaly watch it absororb! red cedar is great and readily available, I am sitting on piles of it here in the shop. I am partial to yellow cedar though. little heavier, but it cuts and planes and sands like nothing else Ive handled. and the smell is amazing. I have some pieces with almost 100 years of growth an inch! if anybody gets a chance to aquire some, I would heavily recommend it! not sure it i posted them in past journal entry, but i did make a couple splitboard cores out of single pieces of yellow cedar. that was awsome.
