Was inspired to rip an old board....No prep, measurments, guide, or hacking of the wrap around edge.total eyeball.with a skillsaw. WPCS style
The board an old avalanche 154 with wrap around edges and a metal signature on the base Here are the results.
Image
Not too bad, but definitly not up to snuf for me or any friends.
Image
This is where the cut ended and the edge ripped out violently in sparks
Image

Pretty fun to do with a beat board, but for the real deal splitty we gotta do it right. Went over to fellow splitter friend and snosk8 killer Jason to chop it. The board was cut with a table saw using a jig.

Sentury 157 all wood core wrap around edges

Image
Image
Some old school iggy II's with even older santacruz lowbacks
Image
And a new G3 skin kit cut to fit
Image
More to come ....

Your freehand skilsaw cut isn't bad! Better than some of these split yer board outfits claiming to be professional!

This sentury board was built with quality wood. Core is solid with no weird channels or holes. The center cut lightly sanded 5 coats of a polyurethane varnish should seal up the inside edge.

I also put an electric heater in the garage so as to keep the room temp above 32 degrees and help the paint dry.

OK its T-Bolt time
This bit will save you time, but could still drill straight through the board, so keepin the drill on a low setting is key
Image

Now drillin out the pilot holes a little bigger
Image

Hammer time

Screw em in, add epoxy, sand the poxy down and done!
