Nick's Berger Board: Part IV
I’ve never been as nervous about a glue up as I was about Nick’s Berger Board. Because of the torsion boxes, I was essentially glueing blind. There was no way of knowing if there were gaps between the veneer sections until I took the board out of the clamps.

Thankfully, the fence I attached to the larger torsion box and the clamps I had pressing against it kept the gaps away. The glue up and veneer turned out wonderfully.
|This minor glue squeeze out was quickly handled by using a razor blade as a scraper, as shown by Matt Berger.|
|Shaped and ready for sanding.|
The shaped board was then sanded from 80 to 220 girt. The final step was to make and drill out for the trucks. Lining them up was a bit never racking, but for just two (2) trucks, I didn’t want to go craze making a jig to set them square.
