And ya, that crown natural base looks foggy as hell, paper graphics dont look super great, but the paint pops out super clear after layup, might look even better after a decent grind.

Does your black turned out really black ?
I did a few silkscreened topheets using the Crown topheet (same material as the base but thinner) and the black ink from Nazdar turned out "dark navy blue" on the final skis. Made a test with black die in the epoxy -» same result !

The ink looked black as hell. Even after it dried. But yes Ben, after pressing looks a very dark navy blue throught he base. I would love to find a true clear base.

Yes that's what I meant.. the ink was 100% black but through the topsheet (or base) it looks dark blue..
The result is very nice on your base ! love it !

I love that "i <3 powder" deck!
Love the mellow tip curve, early rise, and bamboo sw.

Good old Canadian maple. People say maple is heavy, but this deck weights 7lb 9oz and the flex is perfect.

Very nice !
Will you put any kind of tipspacer on those or just leave the bamboo as is ?

I going to use some tipspacers. trying to decide if I want to do the old staight across cut or try to cut some shape into the bamboo tip and try and match up the cut with the spacer. I have done this with my previous boards, but always get litlle voids between the wood and spacer and handcutting to perfection is super hard to achieve.

I checked out the interlock method that you used Ben, but that also looks a little tricky to do with a jigsaw. But I am off now to the dungeon to figure somthing out.

Long night last night at the firehall. We had a 7.7 earthquake just off our coast, and then a tsunami warning was in effect for my city till about 1am.

Looks dope! Nice work. Do both boards have the same flex or are you gonna mix it up?

Ones for my girl. So, I kept that one softer in the nose and underfoot. Both 162 cm. mines like 7.6mm underfoot. First bamboo Cores I've made. Stuff seems super soft. I'm going to used 19.9 oz quadaxial basalt top and bottom plus 9 ounce UNI carbon, one inch stips above and below the cores. Probably won't run those all the way tip tail as left this fairly stiff, but probably just past the inserts.

Has anybody done straight across tip spacers? I know some have, but are then any horror stories with affected flex, function, or breakage?

I can't wait to lay these up with the maple leaves under the top sheets. Gonna look sweet I think

The last splitboards I made I went with just an "around the tip tipspacer", I found it super easy to do and the result was great.
I basically cut the core following my template(20mm offset all around the tips), the I just layed dow the core on some tipspacer material and followed the contour with an x-acto knife... a few light passes with a sharp blade lead to great result !

I do the straight cut thing for skis and noticed no problem at all...
