Nice man. What's the finish like on these? Are they indoor only?

What are the dimensions of the assembled crack/fingerboard? Nice work

Just a suggestion, add more photos. Maybe some pics of it mounted and being used. The pics I saw barely show the crack portion which is really the main selling feature over other $100 hang boards.

I second this. I didn't even realize the crack part was on the bottom until I noticed part of a hand in one of the pictures. Need more pictures of the bottom part of the board with it being used.

Nice work, and i will add that yes, better photos, please.
And since i am a grammar nazi, it is "too late" not "to late". One of my pet peeves. (Raised by English Prof's!)

I believe the proper nomenclature is "alt-write". Welcome to trumps america.

Oh right...:)
That's a YUGE difference.
Did not mean to hi-jack the thread, nice boards.

This looks RAD! I don't have the money just yet but you can count on an order from me, hopefully sooner than later.

Seriously, more photos. I'm very interested, but would like to see more angles and in use shots.

Super neat, I'd be interested in one when I can swing it.

"We ship our crack via Fedex." is a great line, by the way.

Probably way too late to be helpful, but I would be much more interested if there was a ~15-20 degree overhung BD .3-.75 section to practice the harder jams.

Beautiful work, John! The craftsmanship looks top-notch. Love the look of the heavy bolts

Looks so cool!

Maybe next generation add a finger crack? Or some kind of adjustable clamp for flares? Maybe if you mounted one of those wood clamps to the sides? blog.hillmap.com/2012/12/si...

Probably not on the bottom though, do finger jams even work fully inverted, dead-hang?

True - would have to be on the front or side

Can't make everyone happy.

This does look pretty rad.

Looks like it's a front and back piece, plus two spacers for the gap. Theoretically, you could use a thinner or thicker spacer to make a custom width.

I agree that a couple of slots for finger cracks would be amazing. I'd love to do pull ups on ring locks one day.
