Glassing

Well, I don’t have any pictures of him glassing my board.

But, I did get him to send me this one photo of him glassing someone elses board. Notice all the carbon fibre strips on the table, pre-impregnated with epoxy.

If you’re really interested in how that goes, there’s a series of videos on the Nelson Factory website that shows the whole process from start to finish, in fast motion, set to classical music. Go to www.nelsonfactory.com, click on “Composite Construction”, there’s a video player on the upper right. Once you see how many steps there are, and how much care goes into every Nelson board, you’ll understand why a custom is more expensive than a production board, and worth it.
