In this episode of Bloomberg Pursuits' MADE series we visit a shop in York, Maine. Grain Surfboards are built through an additive process that has much in common with traditional wooden ship-building. Planks of wood are cut and glued onto an internal wood frame before being sanded down to their final shape.

Amazing. I hope I come across one of these in my life. I love working with wood and if I had a woodshop I be making art like these... 🤙 Lmk if you'll ever open a shop in Hawaii ill come work for a surf board. Aloha
So odd that this video comes up today when I just finished sanding out a mini Grain twin fish model (similar to the little board being held by the mannequin hand in the beginning of the video). I got it as a gift two years ago and FINALLY got around to making it today.
and what wasnt sustainable ? the beach sand ? sorry earth makes it , oil sorry its made out of calcium carbonate , planets without life have oil science says its not really a fossil fuel , thats coal. so we are done right?
The CNC is only used for the frame. The bulk of the board is hand made. The Grain crew are very nice, sincere and dedicated craftspeople. The frame can be cut with a jigsaw also, but even a poly based shaper starts with a block of foam.
