I dont think Monk will give away his trade secrets to you and let you live.
I think he has access to a kick ass mill with a six foot table

...like vapor says, I'm not much for giving away my whole deal (it's really not that much of a secret). but here's a thousand words on a hint.

what helps me most is the dirty sock

my magical powers derive from something far deeper and much darker than PBR.

Hello,
Here is maybe the answer (or the way to find out...)

Hello,
So the way to make it sould be someting like (at least, it would be the way I would proced):
-cut the board nice and clean, sand the cuts,
- cut and remove from the P-Tex the exact width of the future edges (the part which will be in contact with the snow,must be 2 or 3 mm.),
-route the board side walls and remove enought material to fit in the entire edge (and some vibration resistant buffer),
- inlay the edge (sanded and cleaned in alcool), put it in position with some Superglue drops, then inlay the buffer,
- protect the board halves topsheet and P-Tex from epoxy with adhesive tape,
- install the board halves verticaly (plumbed as flat as possible),
- squeeze plexiglass sheets on both sides of the board halves,
- pour fiber-reinforced epoxy between the plexiglas, make dry at the right temperature,
- remove adhesive tape and plexiglass,
- cut off the epoxy in excess (down to the edge), sand the sidewall,
- apply a fine layer of epoxy for the shine.
Et voilà !! (or I missed something?)

So can anyone suggest a good epoxy to use for this ^^^^ method?

I just ordered some edges and have a extra board to practice on :bananas:

Hello,
I think any good epoxy resin would do the job. Some are more dedicated to wood applications and may stick better to the exposed wood. Some others are more flexible and sould also be good also for the sidewalls. Slow hardener and appropriate curing temperature will help.
The other option (which may be the one of the pictur esend by customsplitbaords.com if I am right) is to stick ABS sidewalls by heating an dstrong pressure (after having glue the edges on the inside face of the P-Tex) and then cut the extra material.
Who is going to give a go (an old ski to which you remove the edges can be a good training base...)?
