NEW Rocker Table Kits
But now, after we’ve made several generations of rocker table designs, and with the help of some pretty advanced CAD technology, we’re proud to say we can offer a full Rocker Table Kitfor each Home Grown Kit we offer.
Rocker Table Kits include a precision CNC-cut “lift” positioned under each frame of the board, perpendicular to the board’s keel. When assembled on your glue-up table, the complete set defines an accurate picture of the bottom of the board, complete with the bottom contours, centerline marks, and spaces for clamping. Just clamp your planks and frame together on the table and you’re on your way.
Our Rocker Table Kits include the complete set of lifts, a boring guide for drilling holes to mount the lifts, hardware to attach it to your glue up table and instructions. Check them out, and get to the board-building and shaping that much sooner!
Next In The Lineup
There are two things we love around here: building wooden surfboards and helping others enjoy that same experience. You might say we’re fanatical about it. We’re pretty sure that we have put more time, resources and passion into perfecting the craft than anyone before us- so much so that we think even Tom Blake would be proud of what this has become.
Our HomeGrown Kits were some of the first products we started offering. We knew then (2006) that we couldn’t even consider providing kits unless we were ready to be available almost any time to answer questions and help guide home builders that might need us. Since then, we’ve taken calls at the dinner table, weekends, holidays… pretty much whenever they need us. Sometimes, we field calls with questions about step one: the rocker table.
As one of the early “prepping” tasks, making the rocker table can feel like an obstacle. It’s just a simple form to hold the parts in the proper orientation during parts of the process, and though it’s not difficult to build, it takes some time to understand how it works, and the time to put it together.
