    • Jim,

      Thanks for the interest. That particular bench was made for a lacrosse store in South Carolina. They provided the surfboard and I did the rest. For my work the fee was $350. I can look into a couple of old boards for you and get back with a price if you’d like. What is the application?

      • Where are you located, we have surfboard ready to go! it’s a classic board that we don’t want getting messed up, so were looking for someone who has done this gig before! we are in SEBASTIAN FL and really want this board made into a bench! Where are you located??

  1. Hello,

    I was wondering if you had the “How To” video to make your homemade fishing reel out of a tin can? I am planning to make this for my Dad.

    Thank you,
