Thanks. It’s 33in x 16in x 1in. Paulownia. No rocker. 1 layer of 6oz glass with 2 layers at the base plate attachment point. I haven’t weighed it yet. It was my first effort at board building, and I made a few mistakes that added weight. My next one will be lighter.

Unfortunately, I’m injured right now so I can’t try it out. I’m very curious to see how it rides and, specifically, whether I need to put rocker in the next one.
