After waiting a week to get some more hardener and epoxy resin, it finally came today. Last weekend, I bought a set of trucks, bearings and wheels so I only had to finish the deck for a working skateboard.
I already had one side of the deck laid in carbon fiber so I essentially did the same process on what would be the bottom of the board. I laid down carbon fiber with the weave oriented different directions. This side has 3 layers of 2×2 twill and one layer of plain weave.
I am planning on also having an interesting carbon fiber design on the top of the board. Taking inspiration from the nose of a Pagani Zonda (many other super cars have carbon fiber like this now) I am going to create a “V” shape with the weave pointing forward. At this point, I’ve done a practice piece of carbon. I’ve even wet sanded it and finished it with a layer of epoxy.
