  • So the long and short of it is, been shaping one off boards for people for a while, glassing has been all over the place. Figure it might be time to swallow the ego bullet a little and let the professionals handle the glassing especially when shaping is being done in an unheated facility; Winter is Coming. . . .  Have had some conversations with some local shapers over the years, and glassers, as well as having worked for a bit with a few. Do not mind paying for quality glassing but understand what material cost actually is, anyone worked with solid glassers that give a good price. Long Island Area specifically. Thanks for the future advice.

  • I've used mike (natures shapes) for both poly/epoxy on a number of boards.

    Not sure if faktion does contract glassing but it doesn't hurt to ask.

    I believe Bunger does it as well.

  • Yea was aware nature shapes does, and Bunger too. Getting feedback on these is a lot harder then it seems. Prices to variable, might have to bite the bullet and glass outdoors with some UV kick.

  • I don't know how easy it would be to negotiate a lower price unless you're bringing a stack of boards.  I think if you want to save a few dollars and don't mind making a mess than glass it yourself. Otherwise I'm all for the convenience of skilled labor finishing off the blank, knowing that I'll receive a quality product and I don't have to worry about making any mistakes.
