@sterlingmagnum: http://www.roarockit.ca/teaching/kits-multi-packs/pintail-teachers-double-kit/#.WEgwWztRGcx once you have the bag and kit all you need is veneer. a board set of veneers is around $30. the first board I made from this technique is still in use.

@sterlingmagnum: oh sweet! I thought it was a print. Wood burning is fun. I've done a few good wood carvings that became great after I added the burn to em. Imagine if you lived close by and we started building skateboards together. We'd be rich bitch! But seriously, if you want deets on starting up your own skateboard building, I've got a good springboard technique for you to consider. Look up roarockit.com.

i love perth. we toured there a few years ago, and i can't say better things about it- except the thrashings we took on the pitch. but stop dreaming dude, and just get on a plane and come out here. and if you get homesick, no worries- theres about a million aussies over here already.

@FIVE8FIVE: oh man, it wasn't on up here in canadammit. The Canadian super bowl is on today and NFL is limited because patriotism and whatnot. I personally dislike three down football, so I don't follow it. I just watched KC score with 12 seconds left. My man Alex smith should have never been chased out of SF. WOOT, tie game!

Good question. Especially since I'm pretty comfortable with steaming and veneer work, logic would suggest that I steam it. But, the little research work that I did regarding traditional yew wood bows told me that they originally just used time, pressure and incremental removals of wood to produce the final product, so I figured why not try it. The tree was harvested by a dude I met on Haida gwaii, and his being First Nations, the wood being cut and left to dry on the beach for a few years, it seemed like all signs directed me to just try it the old fashioned way. Success or failure, it's been a cool project to fuck around with, and I'm fascinated by this woods flexibility and strength.
