A lot more to come! - Dolazi puno toga!

I am busy with my new boards and other projects. Full time working too:)
But, patience, new ideas and practice is coming. Three boards for a start. I'm hoping for the real beauties!

Radim punom parom na mojim daskama i drugim projektima. Uz to radim i puno radno vrijeme, naravno.
Dakle, strpljenja, dosta novih ideja dolazi. Tri daske za pocetak. Nadam se prekrasnim daskama!

For my new trip - Za moje iduce putovanje

I am treating myself with a new board for my next trip to Indo. This board might also act as a new template for my boards since I am slowly building the products base.
Can't wait to try it. It is the high wind board and will take my bigger hand made board with me too.
A little beauty!

~

Malo sam se pocastio sa novom daskom za moje iduce putovanje u Indoneziju. Ova daska ce posluziti kao nova sablona i time polako sirim asortiman dasaka.
Jedva cekam da je probam. To je manja daska za jaci vjetar te cu ponijeti sa sobom i vecu, rukom izradjenu.
Prekrasna daska!

So, what's next? - Dakle, sto nakon ovog?

I think I've never posted this photos. Or I did on some other forums, blogs etc...
So, what is next? Improving the process and materials used for sure and having it as a hobby. Taking it to another level maybe? Maybe even that.

~

Mislim da dosad nisam objavio ove slike. Ili mozda i jesam po nekim forumima, blogovima ili sl.
Dakle, sto je slijedece? Poboljsati proces izrade i materijale i nastojati uzivati u ovome hobiju. Ili pokustati nesto vise od toga? Mozda i to.

~

You can probably guess what this background image is? :))

Vjerujem da mozete pogoditi sto je na slici u pozadini? :))




Or this one:






The beans spilled. This boards is well traveled:)











Enjoj.

Da, prodano je davno i druge su vec u izradi. Vrlo sam ponosan i zadovoljan. Ovo je dokaz da sa nesto malo alata mozete izraditi nesto predivno, funkcionalno i korisno za druge ljude takodjer.




Kako je netko rekao - marka je rodjena i zove se Shinai.

Thank you whoever purchased it in the shop! Enjoj!

My birthday board - moja rodjendanska daska

Today I've decided to glue the top sheet to the bamboo core. The top sheet is as before carbon fiber plus closed cell foam. It is very light and strong. Why I'm doing this? Well, somehow the rocker and concave must me built and for me this is the most elegant solution.

 ~

Danas sam odlucio zalijepiti gornji sloj daske na bambus. Gornji je sloj kao i prije napravljen od carbon fiber tkanine i plastike sa zatvorenim zracnim komorama. Vrlo lagan i cvrst materijal. Zasto uopce radim ovako? Pa nekako se mora napraviti rocker tj. zakrivljenost i concava daske i meni je ovo najlakse rjesenje.

 


I've left the perforated plastic on top of carbon top sheet. This way I can easily position the top sheet on the core and trace the outline with the black marker. Otherwise, how would I position the top sheet on exact place? This is very delicate operation and need to improve it somehow.

~

Kao sto se vidi, ostavio sam perforiranu foliju na gornjem sloju. To mi sluzi da pozicioniram gornji sloj na bambus i oznacim markerom poziciju na foliji. Inace kako bih postavio gornji sloj na tocno mjesto? Ovo je vrlo osjetljiv rad i moram naci neko jednostavnije rjesenje. 




Fiberglass on top of the bamboo core. 

~

Ne zaboravimo fiberglass.



Under the vacuum. I think I've used around 62ml epoxy. Proved vacuum table, all good. Rocker 1/3 board length and concave hopefully 4-5mm.

~

Sve pod vakumom. Utrosio sam oko 62ml epoxyja. Isproban vacumski stol, sve super. Rocker 1/3 dozine daske, concava nadam se oko 4-5mm.





For my birthday today, and around 40C outside, not bad for an old man:)

All the best in 2013!
