Hi!

Nice work so far!
Unfortunately you are at the stage when all the shit starts to happen.
I used to say, when the board is (successfully) laminated, you are only half way there (if you are hotcoating it).
It is also that stage where failed products get thrown away or make you spend another 2-3 weeks repairing it in frustration.
So good luck in these further stages, because you will going to need it.

Started to pre bend my board over the weekend. Here are a few progress pics.

Used hot water in the bath to steam and soak the board for around 20mins:

Placed the board on the rocker table and clamped it:

Going to leave it clamped for a week and see what spring back I have.
Possibly repeat the process again to see if I can get close to the finished rocker before I lay it up.
