My only thought is I'd do something a little more sturdy for the feet. Other than that....looks great.
I left the feet pretty much the same as on my old stand - but after I took those pics I decided I wanted to cut it down a little shorter. So I cut a few inches off, and doubled up the plywood feet.
I have been thinking about stands for a while now and decided to keep it real simple and just make a set of v stands. Bucket, cement, steel pole, bolts, off cuts of wood, double layer of memory foam, staple gun and little bits of vinyl where staples go to hold the foam and hey presto, all done.
freedom from the system does not need to be a dream, it is out there for those who want to truly find it.
I made these while I was triaging the fin boxes I set with off the shelf PE resin from the big box store. Most of the materials scavenged from kind like minded souls. Total outlay in cash $40 USD.
Entropy (noun; from the English); (1) a measure of a thermodynamic system's increasing disorder as it approaches equilibrium. (2) thermodynamic happy place. Usage; "Entropy abounds in my workshop".
Dual Purpose :)
I made these to turn a workbench into a surfboard repair bench. Not really shaping racks, but could be used at a pinch.
Super simple and come apart for storage. I added a flat peice on the top and put foam padding on them.
Had one of the welders in my shop at work make these up. This was before I mounted and padded them. In hindsight I should have told him to use thicker steel for the actual part the board sits on because when lots of pressure is applied they can bounce.. they are not as rigid as they should be but work fantastic.
My new shaping stand. Build from materials I recycled. Solid so I'm happy with it.
Ive been using these for years. local metal place cuts to size and I weld them up. Easy to make and easy to use.
