More Colors

These floors need to be broken. The longer we wait, the cooler the resin colors look. The longer we wait, the harder it is to break!

Photos from a few months back before the floors were broken and cleaned.

I'll take photos of the floors now, and the colors are much different. Funny how the colors differ from month to month.

Lots of Andreini hulls going through the shop right now.
Most of these colorful gems are headed overseas to Mollusk Tokyo.
Pictured are some of them that just had their boxes set. After the boxes fully harden, they will be ground down and a cap(two layers of fiberglass) will laminated over them. Then when the board is done, the polisher will carefully route and bevel the channel in which the fin goes.
