Tom, my bit was 2200 long for SEK 319= two pocket boards.
I think downunder mentioned junksupply.com right on your doorstep. They have 10mm sheets, but my guess is that they will be hard to bend.
Yes. Pretty cheap!
I've been meaning to go visit junksupply. I've messaged with them. Also suspect 10mm is too thick. And much more expensive.
If I could get 2 mm paulonia, then I could sandwich 15mm divinycell H80 between top and bottom sheet of paulonia. Rails could be made my cutting out from those paulonia shelves and milled down. All sandwiched between the 2 mm paulonia. Two side rail parts, and nose, tail part. Less waste.
V- bag it all into a rocker form, shape rails.
Would be nice process. Might even get away with putting only 2 carbon strips on foam, under the wood skins. Then use oil or varnish only on the wood. No glass on the outside!
Would look like solid paulonia.
Other alternative is to stick with the balsa skins and rails, but have to use glass finish to seal and protect the balsa which is very soft.
I'm setting up a 1000*1500 cnc router this winter so easy to do once set up.
