I've posted a video of the asembly process for our metal construction on youtube.
I'll be working on some other videos in the coming weeks.
Thanks for sharing Sean. Your boards ride awsome.
I enjoyed watching, thanks Sean! Can't wait to see future videos

Thanks Sean, gives us laymen some insight to how it all comes together. It always amazes me how faily uncomplicated the construction process really is.
Great video Sean, thanks a ton for posting!
Excellent. Are there any potential problems with epoxy curing too fast on the lower layers before you can get the whole assembly into the press?
I love that you use a drill press to mix the epoxy - there's a time saver !
Gotta love harbor freight. I think I got that drill press for $29.
Wow, I didn't think about the cure time increasing once it is out of the pot and on the board. Awesome. Thanks for the info. I do the occasional windsurf epoxy repair work, so I'll remember to get the stuff onto the equipment fast.
Thanks for the info!
Great vid, thank you!
I'm curious about the metal layers built into the board. With the older metal topsheets (not Doneks), metal failure was pretty obvious. Is it possible for the metal to fracture or crease inside the board? If it did, would one know? And would it even matter? I realize with the nature of the way that you are building the board they are much stronger than just metal topsheets - just curious.
BTW, I just sold my Donek freecarve 171 (from 2001) so that I can update my boards - I hated to see it go though. You build a really great "sturdy as all hell" product.

forgive my ignorance, but when do the inserts go in? (or are they in that sandwich and you just skipped that part)

Really enjoyed that. I'd like to see Bruce and Chris do the same to see how you all whip up our toys.
Nice video Sean.
I work with composite materials in a very similar way building kayak paddles. We use foam cores, fiberglass, carbon fiber, and epoxy all cured in a press. Maybe we could trade some notes on materials and suppliers?
thank you, nice video. what's black cloth - and what it's purpose - which surrounds core?
Great stuff Sean! Thanks for sharing!
