So I took up the task of making a ref board, and i'm doing it right!

I took a old surfboard of mine and tore down the glass, reshaped the foam, and re glassed the *new ref board*.

Used wood and MDF layered, sanded and gesso'ed to make the other pieces.

I still have to finish the paint job after extensive sanding, because the "under glass" layer didn't come out the way I wanted it to. I also have to buy a skate board wheel and bolt to connect to the red wheel piece.

All parts will be removable with FCS fin style connections, and the wheel will be able to freely spin. In the back compartment (the white piece) I will be putting a strip of battery powered green LED's with a toggle switch.

Here's some pics of the board getting it's "hot coat", my handy makeshift glassing stand, and the sanded board (not yet buffed) with pieces resting in place

This whole project is almost done, doing the final buffing and painting today, next is attaching the pieces, which might be difficult, and attaching the wheel, which should be very easy.

Wish I was creative enough to make something like that.

Now that I think about it, it is a personal thread and has lack of discussion. I feel sorry for locking it, since it's so cool, but those are the rules.
