The first pic is the little ding that I thought was my only repair - haven't even gotten to it yet! This board is an old daily driver from a few years back, and I still like it a lot. I once loaned it out to a fellow swaylockian for a whole year, but eventually it came back home.
The de-lam was kinda weird, after I fixed it I got a tiny bubble in the middle, had to cut that open and glue (resin) it back down. Don't know the cause.
Because the board is a favorite, and in good shape, I filled the few pressure dings on the deck it had, and will sand / recoat with a thin coat of resin once I'm done.
I dunno bout you guys, but once I get a few really good waves on a board, it has a place in my heart forever, lol!

Cutting out the delam and gluing it back down is almost always the best way to deal with a delam. 4 or 6 over it and you are usually good to go.

Thanks Huck - I'll have to give it a try.
Perhaps an oscillating palm sander, on the board's underside, with no sandpaper, before epoxy begins to thicken, will get that orange peel to lay down and even out , and require less sanding.
Doing some remedial work on this wood board...
Huck, thanks for the videos. Is that a fill coat or cheater coat?
Be safe, have fun. -J
Its really not either, because technically those are part of the glassing process, and this board was glassed long ago. Its just part of some remedial work necessitated by some movement in the wood.
But it really doesn't matter, either, as far as the process shown, which would be essentially the same.
If I made a video like this, you'd see me running around trying to stop the orange peel, then finally giving up.
Send me your dinged, damaged, and yellowed.
You just weren't paying attention, that IS what I'm doing in the video!
