Looks like you´re gonna be the exclusive supplier of your home spot now :-)

Do you already know how much 0° fibre you´re gonna use? I´m thinking about building something quite similar thick. 200g/sqare meter or so?

I put rocker in 20mm corecell just with the vacuum as well. Simple and reliable boards.

Tom these look cool!
Do they spring back from the rocker? What rocker are you using?
I made last year a 140ish board of a sheet of 20mm corecell, had to use heat to form it to about 13cm rocker but got no springback.
Used a “sauna” technique: pouring hot water onto towels on top of blank in rocker table. Best to do outdoors but worked well and no springback (&in theory no residual stress).
2mm spring back. Rocker form of my own Design. Some people want 50cm rocker others more like 80mm. I can adjust.

interesting. If i built a rocker form and formed 25mm corecell against the bottom and laminated uni d cf on the deck at the same time, i might get away with that. I want to shape the bottom a bit. Might try that in the future.
But heading towards all wood builds in the future.

I laminated the deck last night. Its damn stiff. 1,8 kg. Probably end up 2,2 kg.
Unfortunately due working too long and shop at 22c my resin kicked before I got the vbag up and had insufficient wicking to the absorber and had some resin pooling. Have a little fix to do on it. Also used a different perf film that had fewer holes...lesson learned.
