I have noticed several differant methods on how people are setting up the work benches is the method of useing all thread really worth the time I was considering using shrink wrap and clamps or just go with clamps and cinderblocks as weights. If anyone has experience with this i could sure use some input i have my plans and materials for the most part just trying to decide which way to go I am in Costa rica so have alot of nice woods to choose from i am going with laurel and spanish cedar for the decks with a little pine mixed in. On another note has anyone painted the rails an bottom of any of the sups would like to see some pics
I used the all thread method. The adjustability is awesome. I plan on making at least 2 different boards which have different rocker dimensions/curve. With that said I don't really know if it was worth the extra work or not. Check out my thread 11ft sup in Kansas.

1974 is right, go with the all thread version! I didn't do it that way and my rocker table will need alot of work before my next board. In fact it took a lot of work just to set the rocker on the board I have built!
I'm jealous about the wood, seems that it is next to impossible to find nice straight clear grained wood here in FL.
I thought the all thread would be the way to go its not the money I like things easy which isnt allways the best I havent even started yet and I have at least 40 hours in research on how to build and finish the board off, as for the wood yes I am lucky Costa rica has tons of balsa, pochote,spanish ceder,laurel, teak ect.. and its cheap becuase there are so many small mills around 2 men operations just have to make sure about the curing process down here.
