How Grain Makes Wooden Surfboards

2042 ratings | 123183 views
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. Video by Brian Schildhorn, David Nicholson ---------- Like this video?

Nice. But if this is handmade, the boards I've made are considered finger made. The only tools I use are jigsaw, router and drill.

I think its great you guys made this but you shouldve made it longer and showed more of York, I have a 2 houses right down from there shop its a beautiful place

If you enjoy woodworking plans, you will love woodprix. Get inspired by all the endless possibilities of furniture plans and other wood projects to build, for both indoors and outdoors.

Calls it sustainable , Uses Wood Calls it handmade, uses CNC Machine I hope he is being sarcastic

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. Very weird

Absolutely beautiful boards.🤙

Very nice! I bet there's a lot of satisfaction in making one of those then going out and surfing on it. The commentator below has a point though. The CNC machine doesn't really qualify as hand made.

I like how you use wood but still keep it high tech like the wing of an aeroplane, have you thought of making an electric hydrofoil version.
Aravind Srinivasan (3 months ago)
Love the video direction!
Anthony Lemkendorf (3 months ago)
Awesome and what a beautiful board,but that’s a generous use of the word “sustainable “ . We have synthetic glues , fiberglass cloth and epoxy.

Crafty... BUT... More time than money

This is beautiful work. The CNC machine is just another tool in the shop and in the hands of a master great things happens when all tools are used properly

If I were rich I would just buy a jet ski. Stupid luddites.

Horny Pervert surfing is infinitesimally better than a JetSki. Give it a go if you don’t believe me

“Built 100% by hand”... Then proceeds to start the CNC Router.
ThePunitiveDamages (2 days ago)
Technically, when you buy lumber from a store, a machine (sawmill) was used to cut it to dimensions after another machine (chainsaw) was used to fell the tree. Using a CNC to make the fishbone frame gives the board perfect, evenly weighted balance. It could be done with a jig saw, or using a handsaw, but you just doubled the cost of your board for the amount of labor it takes to do that.
Sattva Woodworks (1 month ago)
Yep! :)
Nick Schade (1 month ago)
Of the 60 hours to make the board, the CNC does maybe 30 minutes. So, if you insist on precision, maybe 99% would have been more accurate. As others have said the CNC machine is just a another tool, like a chisel, saw or drill, it saves some labor preparing the material, but making the actual surfboard is still all done by hand.
Sattva Woodworks (2 months ago)
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.

So it’s basically a wooden tooth pick for the sharks
Luke Hagi (3 months ago)
i don't think there has been a single incident where the shark actually eats the whole board anyway
Luke Hagi (4 months ago)
Jesse C when I hear stuff like this I know immediately you have never gone surf and most likely know very little little about the ocean
