Rocker Table & Jigs
Building a wood paddleboard is much easier than it looks with the help of some shop made tools & fixtures. The rocker table sets the rocker and bottom contours and ensures your board will be properly aligned. The homemade jigs are simple to build and usually save more time than they take to assemble.
This tutorial will teach you how to build a ladder style rocker table for your hollow wood board.
The benefit of the ladder style rocker table is that the bottom contour is pressed into the bottom planking. Each rung of the ladder is a specific height and exactly matches the side-to-side contour of the rib it supports.
