Alright Matt,

I give you permission to use my pictures of my ab boards and take them from Spearboard.  And if YOU ALL ask nicely, I will show you how to make some really nice ab boards.  Those tubes are a thing of the past.  Guys, get with the times.  It's a new generation.  Get with it.   ;D ;D  Those of you that have seen my boards know what I am talking about.
Brian it is your gorgeous and awesome creation so I will let you post it up. It is definitely a great board.

How about this?  Tomorrow, I will sit down in front of the computer and show you guys how to build an average ab board for about $50 to $60.  And I can show you guys how to build a very nice ab board for about $160 to $180.  You guys will be building your own boards.  The info is free.  I will need time to get my shit together to do a write-up.

Which board were you talking about?  The big one or the small one?  The smaller one is is the least expensive to build.  The bigger red and yellow one is the one that puts a hole in your pocket, but is worth it, at least in my opinion.

It was the big one that had its OWN BAG. I'll be on the pc tomorrow night, taking notes ;D

Yeah, that was the expensive one.  It is not a project that is done in a day, like the other one I made.  I had about 10-12 hours into the big one that you like.

Woody,

I think you will like what you see.  It's probaly one of the nicest and cleanest custom ab board made.  But its not very simple to make or build.  Not like my boogie board version.

LAZY!! Nah, Im gunna make mine. I just made a 50' floatline for an ab iron last weekend and am starting to think about the wood I want to use to make my mid-handle speargun. Being a general contractor has its benefits sometimes ;D
