Board #3 Started and #2 Almost Done

Board #2 (my board) with deck lamination done. Carbon deck is reinforced with scraps from doing bottom. Board was going to be yellow, but that was scrapped. Now it will be painted white like a pop out. Thanks go out to Blane for helping me avoid some mistakes. Blane's a regular on the shapers forum.

Board #3 (Jacky's Board) with carbon bottom laminated

I am fascinated with this construction. What is the cost in materials for the all carbon board? Are you having fun or is this a pain?

I'm enjoying it, but hate dealing with the mess in my garage. If I had a shaping shed, I'd build a lot more boards.

Carbon Fiber $250
Fiberglass $50
Epoxy Resin $200
Foam $200
Consumables $50

Oops, add deck pad, fins, finbox, deck inserts +$150

Total cost each $900
