The Description written on the old Fapwood website:
" I started making fingerboards back in 2006. I was just experimenting/making them for myself. I was selling the odd one or two every once in a while. A year later, I started to get a little better at deck making. I was buying better wood, making better molds ect. Once I was comfortable with making bondo molds, my decks where getting a lot better. Bondo molds are quick and easy to make if you know what you’re doing. So I ended up making lots until I got a decent shape. At one point I noticed that I wasn’t riding my decks so much anymore, I wasn’t a fan of the shape like most buyers were. So instead of whipping up a new mold in half an hour, I decided to focus this time. I thought about the deck shapes I’ve used over the years, and what had worked best for me. After putting all those attributes together, I had a deck shape that worked great for me. Since this was my personal shape, and I wasn’t expecting to sell them often. I decided to use a funny name, to show my lack of seriousness. So I settled with Fapwood Fingerboards (credit to Brendan Cronin for coming up with it). After riding fapwoods for a while, people started to notice them. I sold a couple here and there. It turned out my personal mold didn’t only work good for me, but for others aswell. I started selling them more and more, I ended up selling 20 on flatfacefingerboards.com, 10 at the 3rd fingerboard rendezvous, 7 at the 4th fingerboard rendezvous while attending myself, and various decks on ebay and ffi. After a solid 6 months, the Fapwood mold had retired. I had made a lot of decks, and the mold was quite thrashed.
Along came Fapwood G2’s. This time, I wanted to focus on making more of a buyer friendly shape. This shape and size better fits in with other decks on the market. I have only been selling Fapwood G2’s on ebay, and privately to friends. But now with this website, you should find one up for sale about once a week! "
