Rocker Table

The rocker table is complete! This is a more technical design than what is explained in the Grain manual; the exterior includes threaded 1/2 inch steel rods that create a vice system for the board, which also allow additional control for creating the rocker. However, cheaper and more conventional designs work just fine. The most important part is to create at least 24 inches of width across, create either sturdy hand-built sawhorses or use collapsible ones as seen here, create flat/level measurements for the strappings, and 8 inches of space between the strappings. This rocker table is currently built for building a 6 foot fish, but actually 9 1/2 feet in length for potentially building the 9 foot Root...

(http://www.grainsurfboards.com/boards/the-root/). In the meantime, the length is long enough for building the Waka, with a removable working table at one end.
