Hi. Im Haunted (pronounced Bluto) from Spokane

Just joined this forum on my fancy new cellular telephone. I cannot figure out how to post a profile pic for myself on this forum. Also was wondering if there are any snowboard builders out there.

Haven't built any from scratch,but repaired a few.Been using an H frame Hyd press to VG effect.Always thought,if wanting to build them....lining up say 3 H frames would be pretty easy.And they don't need to be that spendy either......HF "cheapo's" would suffice.If getting out of the biz ever transpired you can sell'm for prolly .50 on the dollar.Good luck,be safe!BW

Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.

Welcome to the forum
Are you using the iphone app?
I dont think you can upload your profile pic with it, however you can upload pics on threads with it.
and using the safari browser does not allow me upload a profile pic either.

Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!

Neato. I built a vacuum press that I can change out templates for different profile shapes. The top, I have a clamping surface as well as ( if I flip the clamping surface over) a router bridge assembly for shaping the core. I am new to it and enjoying very much. So far, 1st core on on the router bridge, then to press. Any ideas on making a jig for tapering tips with planer? Thanks.

Oh I see. Well thanks I'll try it. Would like to post pics of my boards as they come along.

Haunt,go to projects page and look for "Stone Cold Country"......you want to talk "tapers"..........building bows is nuthin but!!!!!That build which is an admitted complete ripoff,is sporting multiple tapers.Most bow manuf. settle in on certain "constant" tapers..001....002....003...thousandths,per inch taper.Think about that for a second.That bow runs from an .002 to .004.And it takes gobs of experience to get that transition in exactly the right place.

Now,what-if you could change that taper,mid-stream?This is where...I'd bet GOOD money the snowbd,"bigboys" are.Its that last bit of tuning that.....well,maybe Joe-Shmo couldn't tell the diff...but I'll gauren-DANG-tee you a pro could feel the difference.

Think about your question....you asked about tapering the core woods right?To wit,heck yeah...what do you want to know about it....when it comes to multiple tapers....its gonna get DEEP,WRT metrology and engineering....so,and don't take this wrong but....you'll need to get a full understanding of a std taper first.And it don't involve a planer.Its all about grinding(sanders).Imagine a widebelt or variant with your core wood sitting on a taper'd plane.Thats how most get a std taper.......the 64k$ question is how you custom cut multi tapers.But you really need to work on your std tapers first.BW

Yeah. That's awesome. Maybe I should stick with the router bridge method for a while. Will have to look at that site and others like it for a while to grasp the basic principles. Thanks again B.W.
