"How did you do this?" Dave asks Major Nelson about his insane polish.

Why did the sander call in sick?

Ok it could have been six glass on quads. Actually, it's pretty fun sanding fins. These boards by Marc Andrieni for Two Birds Fly, will be sanded, leave to have art done. Then the're back to be glossed.
We'll see if the polisher calls in sick...
