For a long time, we have been working towards getting our board designs into a computer aided design program with the end goal of being able to cut our frames and keels on a CNC machine. We are proud to say that we have now reached that point. We are working with 5th-Axis (http://5th-Axis.com/) in Stonington Connecticut to produce the keels and frames for each of our boards. CNC is an extrememly efficient method of cutting plywood shapes. It eliminates any human error, and allows us to offer a consistent product, whether we’re building one board, or selling 100 kits.
