Hayden-Size does not matter other than what you think looks pleasing and what fills in the void. I would 'Google' some boards with tailblocks, decide where your box needs to go, and sketch it out on paper full size to help with the visuals. -J
PS You could also do an angled wedge of EPS symetric to the centerline of the board, with the point somewhere inside the finbox area and fanning out over the pintail.
Be safe, have fun. -J
Great, thanks for the help J. Im not too concerned with visual appeal but all the advice is greatly appreciated.
9-6,16.75,22.75+2,14.75, 3-1/8 speed shape/glider, I can’t really tell a huge difference between the two other than a glider may have a slightly straighter plan shape.
I’m not as big on two part backgrounds, dips or popsicles the way some are on this site; but you have done an excelllent job with that one primarily because of the colors achieved. One thing I have always liked(and have done a few myself) spreading the accent from a central point the way you did your darker color. Very well done. Every board is different. That’s why resin work becomes “Art”. As I have told a few board builders; you can copy a resin tint board that someone else has done, but it will Never be an exact copy.

it's been a while. don't quit your day job and all that. finally had to replace a shortboard. vacuum system has a few small leaks, but not enough to really warrant totally breaking it down to redo all the connections. miss this place.
That one is going to get noticed!
Nice one pompano. Talk about the rails pls
All the best

LOL. Some years back, Mike Daniel failed to get his point across to drew and I about the horrible impact resistance that CF has when I tired of the wood rail build up even with cork when CF tape buried under S cloth was so easy. Bulk purchase of some hundred yards of CF rail tape at discount and I use it with the 1 lb EPS and balsa vacuum bag with a single layer of 4oz S and it is so shockingly strong.
9-2 classic pig, reverse blank and some serious lumber t-band stringers. Glad I sharpened my handplane to a razor edge. Working railbands around this wood isn’t messing around.
I also picked up a pail of dion 6631-20 isophthalic resin. See how it goes but I plan to start glassing all my boards with it.
