PostSubject: Noir Decks!   Sat Feb 01, 2014 2:43 am

Hey FBHQ. I just launched a fingerboard company called Noir Decks. I make/sell 100% handmade fingerboards. Right now I have 10 decks in stock. 5 regular and 5 old school style decks I call Bruisers, and they come in different shapes and widths. These decks have medium to high kicks and low concave. They have nice pop, nice lacquer, they're all in all great quality fingerboards.

Here's the regulars:



Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand here's the Bruisers:



All decks are 15$ each, except for one which is 10$, because of weird looking sides. Shipping is 5$ worldwide. The decks will come nicely packaged in a bubble mailer to avoid harm during shipping.

You can buy them at www.noirdecks.bigcartel.com.

Thanks for reading.  elephant

They look okay, but yeah, side pics would be great.
Also, it may just be the pics, but the lacquer looks a bit thin sad
Either way they look really good happy

Here's the shape:



RedWolf: The cross grain bottom was intended to be that way, since I think it looks awesome and it doesn't really make it worse. It makes it less strong than a vertical bottomply 5 ply, but still stronger than a 4 ply with vertical bottomply. Also yes, the shape needs some perfection.

Slaw: The lacquer is shiny, but it's not that glass looking finish. You can see the shine from the side, but I might smack an extra coat or two on tomorrow.

Sorry man but the shaping of the kicks could use a bit of work.. Lots of lopsided kicks I see tongue

Just my opinion man, they're off to a good start though.

By lopsided, do you mean that one is bigger than the other?

Btw, thanks Sam.

No, I mean that the shaping isn't perfect when it comes to making it like a perfectly symmetrical "U"
Practice and time will help you with getting better at it happy

Yeah, I definently need to improve the U, and I'll do my best to get them a lot better on the next batch of decks. The next batch will also have graphics and better splits. Thanks for the constructive criticism. (:

hey man,

nice start.

Firstly, there's nothing wrong with the grain going sideways on the bottom ply, people always seem to look at it as if its a bad thing. Ive got a couple of decks like that, and I really like them.

the kicks do need some better rounding, that comes with practice. Personally Id recommend waiting until you have the kicks rounded properly before you sell them. You want people to get a good impression of your product from the start, so I'd say get the kicks sorted, then start selling them for $20, rather than discounting them because they aren't perfect. Not trying to sound negative, hopefully you get where I'm coming from.

Lastly, those oldschools look fresh! love them dude!! cool cool cool

Hey guys, I just made some quick fixing on the shape on the regulars, they're not quite as lopsided as before. See for yourself.



I also took some new pics for the site.





Btw, thanks Joe, glad you like the old schools! I've improved the kicks on the regulars now, so yeah. I'm not really trying to discount because they aren't perfect, I'm setting the price at what I would pay for a fingerboard. (: Thanks again for letting me know what you think!

Some more decks are now up on the site!

Hand drawns with dyed plies! I also worked on the sanding and gave them some heavy duty lacquer!
