925 viewsUse the inside sponson template and make a rough outline on the Divinycell foam. Vacume the foam or blow the excesive dust away...

Apply the "pre-kicked" plywood (kicker side down!) to the Divinycell. Then turn it upside down and push down. It helps if you have a flat surface of course and some plastic wrap or similar so you wont glue you sponsons to the table...Niklas Edlund
